Guy Gavriel Kay’s The Fionavar Tapestry Set for TV Treatment


Temple Street has scored the TV rights for Guy Gavriel Kay’s The Fionavar Tapestry book trilogy.

Published as three volumes in the mid-1980s, the trilogy—The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire and The Darkest Road—has sold more than a million copies around the world. The stories follow five young men and women who are brought to Fionavar, the first of all worlds. Told they are simply to be guests for the 50th-anniversary celebration of a king’s ascension to the throne, each of the five discovers they have a greater, dangerous role to play as they’re placed into a war between the forces of good and evil.

The author commented: “I’m truly happy that David and Ivan and the impressive team at Temple Street are the ones bringing my trilogy to television. I know The Tapestry has had a powerful impact on readers—and on other writers—and that’s part of why I’ve been careful with the rights. I’m excited and anticipate this adaptation will bring new people to Fionavar while rewarding longstanding fans.”
