Ron Moore To Create “Adult Harry Potter” TV Series

Battlestar guru to oversee new fantasy show for NBC

Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ron Moore is set to create a new fantasy TV series for US network NBC, reports Deadline Hollywood.

The site reckons that the as yet unnamed project, described as a “Harry Potter for adults”, is one of the biggest pilot orders of the TV season, with a budget of around $2 million. Apparently the  show is set in a world ruled by magic rather than science, and it is being made by Sony TV for NBC. Moore recently signed a two-year deal to develop projects for Sony, so it looks like they’re getting their money’s worth.
