Fireworks TV buys ‘Realms’

Dragons' Salvatore to penn mini

Fireworks Television, working with Miramax Films on ABC’s upcoming “A Wrinkle in Time” mini, has snapped up the TV rights to the “Forgotten Realms” novels.

R.A. Salvatore, scribe for many of the books based on the popular Dungeons & Dragons game series, is on board to pen the live-action TV effort, also to be titled “Forgotten Realms.”

Salvatore is penning the novelization for the pic “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones.”

Still needing a buyer, “Forgotten Realms” already has suspense built into its adventure premise of a land filled with wizards and sorcerers.

But Fireworks veep Daniel Tibbets, now targeting broadcast and cable outlets, believes it’ll attract attention. “Mr. Salvatore’s fertile imagination coupled with his intimate knowledge for the plots and characters of this fantasy world will create a series that will have great appeal with its fans,” Tibbets said.

Hasbro subsid Wizards of the Coast, owner of the Dungeons & Dragons game property, will help Fireworks develop “Forgotten Realms” storylines.
