David Heyman, who acted as a producer on all eight of the Harry Potter movie adaptations for Warner Bros. Pictures, recently chatted with Total Film magazine about the highly-anticipated TV series (of which he is executive producer).
“It’s early days,” he said, in reference to the development of the show. “We haven’t even hired a writer to begin writing. It’s a bit early. But hopefully [it will be] something that’s very special, and gives us an opportunity to see the books, and to enjoy a series which explores the books more deeply.”
It was first rumored that there was a Harry Potter TV show in the works back in 2021. Then, in April of this year, the series was officially ordered by HBO and Max.
