Reports of a Red Sonja series for TV is circulating.

Dan (TheGreatBeast) | 213 comments Can't view the link at work. But I'm down. Can't have enough S&S TV series, though I wonder how much viewership it would garner...

Randy Harmelink | 787 comments Looks like someone is trying to generate interest, since they don't even have a network for it yet. Might not even have pitched it to any networks yet.

Dan (TheGreatBeast) | 213 comments I'm not sure what I would want of this... It might be fun to have something Raimi produced like the Spartacus series or to a lesser extent Legend of the Keeper (and Hercules and Xena too), a bit cheesy, but action packed, violent and sexual. Or something more serious like A Game of Thrones or The Last Kingdom.

Martin Christopher | 67 comments I have to say I am extremely doubtful about this. I very much expect it to be awful and canceled after 8 episodes. I just don't see how current TV could make anything good out of that material.
But then, I applaud the attempt. Better try and crash and perhaps keeping producers away from the genre for another 10 years than not trying at all.
