Wizard's First Rule as a series

I was wondering when this would happen. Sam Raimi is planning a weekly fantasy series based on the somewhat gory Wizard's First Rule. The Sword of Truth was an okay-ish series, had a few brilliant concepts here and there (although die-hard Robert Jordan fans will beg to differ).

I wonder how he will adopt the extremely violent blood fests for the TV? Torture, mutilation and extreme violence is a trademark of this series. I suppose you could allocate it as late night telly.

And given such themes, Disney is behind this? I suppose the disturbing bits will be cleaned up to suit most audiences. As long as they don't deter from the storyline ...

Nonetheless, am keeping an eye out for this one.
