Settlers of Catan Becomes A TV Series?

“Air Force One,” “Outbreak” and “The Perfect Storm” producer Gail Katz has acquired the feature film and TV rights to the German board game “The Settlers of Catan” which has sold over 22 million copies in 30 languages since its release two decades ago.

Created by Klaus Teuber, the game’s goal is to create the dominant community on the ever-changing fictional island of Catan amid the island’s scarce resources.

Katz says: “The island of Catan is a vivid, visual, exciting and timeless world with classic themes and moral challenges that resonate today. There is a tremendous opportunity to take what people love about the game and its mythology as a starting point for the narrative.”
