I see it on the channel description but what the heck is this? How did we not know about this?

I don't understand. How did no-one know about this.

I mean, obviously if you're about to make a 14 book series into a TV series you don't do it without promotion, spending 22 minutes on a character that doesn't make it out of the prologue during the pilot....


My newest hunch is that it's basically lorem ipsum for something they haven't scheduled yet; whoever had to enter the schedule made a reference/joke instead of just putting "TBA".

Edit: Dragonmount says that Red Eagle Entertainment, who owns the rights, needs to release something in 2015 in order to reset their 7 year timer. (Source: http://www.dragonmount.com/index.php...how-pilot-r849).

I will probably watch it when it comes on. Hopefully it won't be too painful.

Called my mom and she is recording it for me (I do not have a TV with cable or satellite).

How is this on at 1:30am, why are they not testing it at a better hour?

Probably because it's going to suck, and they're trying to slip under the radar. Or, because FXX thinks it sucks and isn't worthy of a better air time.

Indeed it sucks. Billy fucking Zane chewing scenery as Ishamael.

I wonder if they paid fxx to put this on, sort of how informercials buy time. No one would debut a real show like this

So basically Harriet should sue and just use this as evidence that Red Eagle doesn't deserve the rights. Also shame on you, Billy Zane.

Yup, it was terrible. The acting was incredibly underwhelming, the effects were so low-budget that they couldn't even manage the palace shaking, much less Dragonmount; Ilyena was a brunette, and Lews Therin fell on his sword. Off screen. The writing was terrible; they stretched it out for some god knows reason and made it more confusing than it needed to be.

I'm guessing this basically destroys the chance for a WoT TV show, or even a semi-competent movie? Because I don't think anyone is going to want to touch it even if the pilot was sneakily aired in an obscure time slot.

Shame on Red Eagle for this.

I suspect that Red Eagle is thinking that if they decide to do a serious series after all, they can always redo the Prologue. From what I've read (here in this very thread for instance) it doesn't sound as if they invested serious money in it, so just ditching that episode wouldn't cost them too much.

On the other hand, it also means that right now, RE does not have any intentions of starting working on this. If they had, they wouldn't have risked getting their actual production being dragged down by this substandard place holder.

I'm sure a decent rip will be online some time tomorrow, and then everyone can watch it.

Here's a recording someone made by taking a video of their TV:

Apparently several people are trying to figure out how to rip from DVR.

Update from Harriet:

https://plus.google.com/103674399065...ts/6nz79eMTNoG

Quote:
Statement from Harriet

This morning brought startling news. A “pilot” for a Wheel of Time series, the "pilot" being called Winter Dragon, had appeared at 1:30 in the morning, East Coast time, on Fxx TV, a channel somewhere in the 700s (founded to concentrate on comedy, according to the Washington Post).

It was made without my knowledge or cooperation. I never saw the script. No one associated with Bandersnatch Group, the successor-in-interest to James O. Rigney, was aware of this.

Bandersnatch has an existing contract with Universal Pictures that grants television rights to them until this Wednesday, February 11 – at which point these rights revert to Bandersnatch.

I see no mention of Universal in the “pilot”. Nor, I repeat, was Bandersnatch, or Robert Jordan’s estate, informed of this in any way.

I am dumbfounded by this occurrence, and am taking steps to prevent its reoccurrence.
