Books in the News: The Mortal Instruments Coming to the Small Screen
Although The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones didn’t break any box office records, a la The Hunger Games, it still has a rabid fan base (points at self). So thankfully, someone in Hollywood got it right and realized this fabulous series would do much better on the small screen. That’s where ABC Family comes in. The network and home to another popular YA series, Pretty Little Liars, has ordered the Cassandra Clare saga to series with production beginning this May. The series will now be called Shadowhunters (which I think may help its appeal). I can only hope and pray that the show can find an audience on ABC Family, (personally I think it would do better on SyFy). We will keep an eye out as casting news unfolds.
So are you excited that The Mortal Instruments is getting a second shot on tv?
