According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Kirkman and producing partner Dave Alpert will adapt Chronicles of Amber for television.
The novel series by the late Roger Zelazny centers on the “true” worlds of Amber and the Courts of Chaos. Those with the ability to travel between the two worlds can also shape new shadow worlds. Earth is one of these shadows. The ten main novels in the series were released between 1970 and 1991, divided in half by two major protagonists: Corwin and his son Merlin. In the first, Nine Princes of Amber, Corwin awakens in New York with amnesia and becomes aware of his true identity while learning the path between worlds.
Kirkman and Alpert — through their Skybound Entertainment — will develop the series with Vincent Newman Entertainment. AMC will likely get a first look at the project via their deal with Kirkman.
“Chronicles of Amber is one of my favorite book series of all time, and one of my main inspirations for working in film and television,” said Alpert in a statement. “Getting to produce this project is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. I can’t wait to share this amazing story with a new generation of fans.”
