Wheel of Time TV News
Another slow news week. The only titbit was that the shopkeepers in Prague reported a shortage of Dr Pepper after a small American lady raided their shelves. Narg found this suspicious and investigated... sure enough Sarah Nakumura, Wheel of Time TV show consultant extraordinaire, made a trip to Prague.

Nothing official out of this SDCC this year on The Wheel of Time, but it was revealed that Amazon had greenlit season two of The Boys, and put it into production before season one has even aired.

Hopefully the same will happen with The Wheel of Time. This renewal is a good sign that Amazon, if they like what they see, are willing to commit to second seasons for their new tranche of big budget shows before the viewing data comes in.

Amazon also released a trailer for Carnival Row. It will be worth checking out the show as it was shot in Prague, and a few of the people who worked on it, will also be working on WoT.

#NargCasting
This week, Narg has some "real-ish" casting speculation...

While browsing Instagram Narg came across a post by Joseph Gatt from SDCC. The post had seemingly nothing Wheel of Time related in it, but he used the hastag #TheWheelofTime, so Narg took a closer look. In the caption section he mentioned something that got Narg's speculation nerves tingling:
the lovely @andiegreen (who we thank for your generous invite)Mercy has already had the pleasure of working for the Amazon family twice. Most recently on #BlissMovie !! I’m hoping I will be joining this awesome family very soon
Andie Green is the Amazon Studios executive overseeing WoT.

So we have Andie giving Joseph and his wife an invite to SDCC, Him saying he's hoping to join the Amazon family soon, and the addition of the WoT hashtag even though the photos don't have anything WoT related in them.

Looking at that with a critical eye, you could say that the invite was actually for Josephs wife, given she's worked on Amazon productions before, that the hashtag is due to Andie's connection to WoT and that Joseph just wants to work on a Amazon show and is being optimistic...but Narg hates being critical, so lets run with the theory that Joseph will be appearing in The Wheel of Time.

There is also this cryptic reply...(thanks Ryan)

Note: that account is a fanpage, not an official amazon account

What roll could he fill?

Mordeth perhaps?

The Myrddraal!?!

 
                            Joseph Gatt says his character in Disney's 'Dumbo' is Darth Vader to Michael Keaton's The Emperor
Who do you see?

You can view Joseph's >>Showreels<< and profile on IMDb, if you want to speculate with Narg.

Update: Joseph had the following to say about the above speculation on Twitter:
I would be a very happy actor if @AmazonStudios asked me to join the #WheelofTime family. It’s gonna be epic!
Narg's question to Gatt would be..."How happy are you currently feeling?" 😛
