Thanks to our friend Nadine at TMI Germany we have Martin Moszkowicz’ interview with the German newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” where he talks about The Mortal Instruments being turned into a TV series.
What we already knew from The Hollywood Reporter:
- Ed Decter is the showrunner
- the series is currently under development and will begin production next year
- no broadcast partners are yet attached
- Constantin Film aims to spend 2.5 to 5 million Euros per episode ($3,000,000 to 6,300,000), which would probably also apply to The Mortal Instruments
- Ed Decter is the main author for the first (!) season
- Martin thinks that Amazon could be interested in the TV series. The episodes and books could be on the same page so that you could buy them with one simple click
This morning (German time) Martin also tweeted:
Like we’ve already said yesterday, it seems unlikely that our old cast will return :-(
What are your thoughts about the TV series? Sound off in the comments!
