A Lord of the Rings series is coming to the small screen soon, but it is not coming to HBO. The network did not pick up the series.
It is going to Amazon instead!HBO revealed the following about why it passed on the big franchise, per a Variety report:
“I’d rather own our IP [intellectual property] 100%… and I’d rather have the ability to work with a product that is inextricably linked to our brand.”
HBO has plans for five prequels to Game of Thrones, so fantasy fans will still have plenty to check out on the cable network.
