Red Notice Director Rawson Marshall Thurber Joins DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS TV Series
eOne and Hasbro have brought in director Rawson Marshall Thurber to the upcoming Dungeons and Dragons TV series. The Red Notice director will oversee the adaptation of the popular tabletop fantasy RPG from Wizards of the Coast as well as developing the pilot script and executive producing on the series. With plenty of streamers interested in the series, eOne is hoping to make some headway on the development of the series since being bought by Hasbro.
eOne is looking to not only bring D&D to the small screen but is hoping this is the foundation for a large D&D universe and their hope is that Thurber can set the tone for the series as an A-list quality project. The series will be the anchor that opens up the universe for potential spin-offs and other series in the future.
eOne’s President of Global Television Michael Lombardo said:
“We don’t want it to just be one show, so we are building out, developing out a multi-pronged approach for television, a number of scripted shows and unscripted, and we hope to be taking this out to the marketplace early next year.”
Netflix would be a prominent destination for the series and the capability for the potential universe they are looking to build as Thurber has already worked with the streamer and together they created one of the streamer’s most popular films with two sequels set to shoot back-to-back as already confirmed by Netflix. This would also give the project potential to attract some big-name talent to the series.
Look for more news on the upcoming D&D series as well as eOne’s Dungeons & Dragons film that is coming from Paramount in March 2023.
