Next Pratchett TV Adaptation Revealed
The fourth Discworld book to make it to screen will be… well, you’ll have to click on through to find out (unless you recognise the cover from that teeny tiny pic)
The Mob, the production company behind the three previous Discworld adaptations for Sky One, has revealed that the next Pratchett book it’ll be adapting is Unseen Academicals.
All the company says on its website at the moment is that, “This year also sees production commencing on the fourth Terry Pratchett drama, Unseen Academicals,” which doesn’t even confirm that it’ll be for Sky One, but you have to assume that’s the case (there’s been no official word from Camp Murdoch as yet).
Unseen Academicals, which is a typically skewed Discworld take on the world of football, follows The Hogfather, The Colour Of Magic and Going Postal, each of which has been better than the last. Fingers crossed that trend continues.
