The unexpected Wheel of Time pilot, Winter Dragon

Because TV is complicated, for various long and detailed reasons you can find over here, on Sunday night in the US, FXX aired a pilot for Winter Dragon, an adaptation of Robert Jordan’s fantasy series Wheel of Time. It’s a prologue to a planned bigger series for the the whole of Wheel of Time that basically needed to air on TV before Wednesday if the current owners were to keep the rights.

So if you want to know what a contractually obligated TV show looks like, have a gander – it’s on YouTube now. What do you think?
