“Xanth” Books To Become A Film & TV Series

SP Entertainment Group are developing both a feature film and TV series based on Piers Anthony’s long-running fantasy novel series set in the world of Xanth.

The first book, “A Spell for Chameleon,” was published in 1977 with the 42nd novel in the series to be published this month. Plans are reportedly in place to announce the creative talent involved shortly.

Xanth is an enchanted land where magic ruled – where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. In the first book, a notable exception is Bink of North Village who possessed no magic – despite charts suggesting he was one of the most powerful in the land. Bink knows that if he doesn’t find some soon he would be exiled.

Steven Paul, Spike Seldin and Hans Futterman will produce.
