New News: Not a peep since JordanCon back in April at which we learnt the following:
Sony Pictures Television has signed a contract with executive producer Ted Field of Radar Productions (with whom Bandersnatch Group signed a contract last year) to develop a TV production of the Wheel of Time series.
And a week or so later:
We understand that Rafe and Ted are currently in discussions with a number of content distributors/networks, and that negotiations will be concluded soon. Sorry, we don't know who they are.

Make of this what you will, Rafe posted a picture from his new house a few weeks ago...

Some cheeky young lad posted this comment:

It received two likes...One from Narg and one from Rafe Judkins himself. One would hope he wouldn't give false hope by liking the comment if the show had been shelved, but who knows maybe he's a sadistic bastard ;)

Narg decided to see if he could incentivize Rafe to give us a little bit more... luck so far...

Whoever is acquiring SFF content for Netflix seems to be into niche authors(Morgan, Scalzi and Sapkowski fans...spare Narg your outrage) . To add to The Witcher(who just got a showrunner) and Altered Carbon they have now added Old Man's War by John Scalzi. If they continue in this vain Wheel of Time has no hope and the next acquisition by them is likely to something along the lines of the Acts of Caine books by Matt Stover. Take a looksee at the Altered Carbon trailer to see the sort of money Netflix is willing to spend on a book series that has a tiny fraction of the sales and name recognition of WoT.

General Wheel of Time News

CivilizationEx on YouTube has put together a neat video of the history of Wheel of Time before the Breaking. Might need some fact go forth and...check stuff....

A Redditor asked for WoT's the two best:

How does Rand keep track of his appointments?
With his Callandor.

Not everyone will get the next one...

Why did they go to Ebou Dar?
To find Moiraine

Oh and of course it would be remiss of Narg not to trot out his Myrddraal jokes...

What do you call a Mryddraal wearing lipstick?
Quite Fetch-ing!

What happened to the Myrddraal who couldn't eat?
He Faded away!

Where'd the Trollocs find the baby Myrddraal?
Lurk-ing in the Woods!
