The Daily Trolloc (65)


Weekly Issue 65.  (Art by Nahelus)

Wheel of Time News
The Wheel of Time Showrunner revealed the writers' room for the show!

Hopefully the next bit of news will be who the writers are...

Narg and others thought the room looked a bit spartan, so Narg let himself in and redecorated!

Don't worry only one of the heads is real...

Rumor Mill
As more people become involved with the production of the show, more rumours/leaks are likely to start popping up on the web. Narg will examine each one and give it a rating based on a complicated algorithm that only a Trolloc could understandđŸ˜›...Here are the first two that Narg has found recently:
Re Rand CastingNow I hear from a guy who says he has a source in the production saying that they’re looking for actors in the 19-20 age range.
3rd hand and a very narrow restrictive age range for such an important casting.
Narg Rating:

Re Filming Base: I heard that they would film all of it in Sheffield
Very specific but with no indication of where or who they "heard" it from. Still Narg looked into it more and there are new sound stages being built in Doncaster that could serve as the studio base.
bdaily.co.uk: Grant funding for a new film and television studios, to be built on the site of the former High Melton campus of Doncaster College, has been agreed by the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority.
doncopolitan.com: The purchase will lead to the creation of an international film and television studio and The VFX* Academy, which will help to address the current skills shortfall in the industry of 10,000 people.  These new facilities at High Melton will increase studio capacity across the UK by nine per cent and address the sector skills shortage by up to a third. By launching a VFX offering at High Melton, film producers will be able to create their films end-to-end on site, simplifying schedules and reducing production costs. The model is designed to attract a wide range of UK and US film and TV productions and establish Doncaster as a leading hub for media production.
It is also very close to the Peak District National Park that could easily provide backdrops for the first season.

Narg has previously looked at the UK as the base for studio filming and given that Sony has based its previous "period" shows in the UK, the Amazon announcement was made in the UK, and its close proximity to other suitable European filming locations, you'd have to say that the UK is a strong possibility.

Re Narg: Narg and Sarah Nakamura are the same person

Narg can see how this rumour started. Narg does get his hair and nails done at the same salon as Sarah, but Narg can assure you that this is not a "before and after" makeup photo.

Narg Rating: 

Narg will update any rumors, if new information comes to hand.
