Ah I wondered what had happened to this, was initially going to be on the BBC if I recall? Though it seems Rhianna Pratchett is still attached to write it  so must have just moved to the JHC.

Hopefully it'll be good! I have my doubts that Pratchett is very adaptable to screen however, the key element to his work is the narrative writing itself, his language and jokes, which you can't really replicate on screen.

I feel the same way. I have a feeling the story will be changed dramatically in order to better capture audiences.
