Update: More on this at a newer post http://kimharrison.wordpress.com/2012/05/28/cw-passes-on-hollows-for-2012-2013-season/
If you’re on my FaceBook, you probably heard the news yesterday that there is a chance that the Hollows will be translated to the small screen. i.e., a TV series. (insert wild happy dance here)
I’ve been sitting on this news since last February, and now that the news has broken, I can talk about it! (insert second wild happy dance) I’m going to send you right to the site that explains who is chaperoning this opportunity and writing the pilot, (insert third wild happy dance) but much like the military, it is very much hurry up and wait at this point for me while things are still being settled.
It feels very fragile, much like Trent’s 20-5-1 screen saver and the words I live by, but on the other hand, this is a very real opportunity, and I am eager to see how it develops. I have been in contact with Julie and Jordan a few times, and they seem very keen on using much of the elements that are mainstays in the books. I’m hopeful that this two-way communication continues, as even though they are looking at what’s already on the page, it is hard to realize the depth of balance and counterbalance that I’ve put into play and why with just one look.
I’m still very invested in the series, and I am eager to see how the Hollows can be successfully translated to the small screen. And it is a translation. The two medias of paper and film have different requirements in the storytelling, and that has to be respected. THE STORY BEGINS . . .
I also have to show you a fabulous video interview I did with RT about the series as a whole and the newly released Hollows Insider. You can see the madness of Comic Con New York in the background and find out why I go. It is too much fun!
