Darkover Books Become A TV Series

Producers Ilene Kahn Power and Elizabeth Stanley have secured rights to author Marion Zimmer Bradley’s renowned sci-fi novel series “Darkover” says Variety.

The books are set in a solar system where ‘Darkover’ is the only human-habitable planet of seven planets orbiting a fictional red giant star called Cottman. They detail the colonization on a new planet where the inhabitants begin their own species.

The pair reportedly convinced Bradley’s estate that the twenty book property would better be turned into a television series rather than a feature film. As a result they are pitching it to various cable networks.
