Team Jordan had this to say in a post regarding the passing of Jordan's 69th birthday:
And we apologize for letting the month of May pass without mentioning the release of the paperback edition of THE WHEEL OF TIME COMPANION, offered at an attractive price. This volume affords fans a good opportunity to bone up on obscure and familiar details of the canon before the upcoming WoT TV series comes to life.
Good to see they still think things are moving along with the TV show.

Variety reports that Rafe Judkins has just shelled out a cool 1.1 million dollars on a new home just a short drive from Sony Pictures Television HQ.
Rafe Judkins, a contestant on the 11th-season “Survivor” who went on to write and produce for “Chuck” and “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and is queued up to write and produce the “Wheel of Time” TV series based on Robert Jordan’s fantasy novels, has dropped slightly more than $1.12 million for a secluded 1970s micro-compound in the mountaintop community of Topanga, Calif.
This could just mean Rafe has been saving his money like a good boy and not squandering it, or it could mean a Bank believes he has a secure enough job to lend to him. If the latter lets hope we all here more about this secure job soon. Either way Rafe seems confident enough to buy a nice pad.

Variety also reports Apple snagged a hire from Amazon and that we may soon find out what Apple has in the pipeline:
At Apple, Wandell will be tasked with developing big-ticket productions that can travel well around the world. He will report to Apple Video chief content officers Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg in his role as head of international creative development for worldwide video. He starts at Apple’s Culver City office at the end of this month.
Wandell’s move to Apple has been in the works for months, long before the shakeup last week that saw Amazon Studios president Roy Price ousted amid allegations of sexual harassment. He is the latest high-profile hire in the unit that former Sony Pictures TV presidents Van Amburg and Erlicht have been building out for the tech giant since June. The creative community has been abuzz with talk of content deals in the works at Apple, suggesting that a first wave of greenlights is coming soon.
Narg doesn't think Apple TV/Video would be the perfect place for WoT to land but they gots the money and  better there with a big budget than say AMC with a crap one, INO.

Anyways if one is feeling optimistic, one could add those three bits of information together and get...TV show news coming soon! Narg bad at maths and a pessimist though, so probably not.
