TV Amazon announces deal for ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV series

AT AMAZON STUDIOS, a sprawling epic series has become a commodity most precious. And so the streaming service that first launched with a show about the political swamp of Washington (“Alpha House”) is now headed to the Shire.

Amazon announced Monday that it has obtained the television rights for “The Lord of the Rings” fantasy book series. Under the deal, which includes a multi-season production commitment and a potential spinoff, Amazon’s tales from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth will effectively be a prequel to “The Fellowship of the Ring.”
