Terry Goodkind and the TV show based on his books.
Terry’s books are popular enough to warrant a tv show. *shudders*
Called Legend of the Seeker, I’ve been told it’s only very loosely based on the books and is actually much better. I personally don’t think that’s saying much.
Unlike Game of Thrones, Legend of the Seeker was a flop and was cancelled after two seasons.
I guess the world wasn’t ready for Terry’s vision.
