UPDATE: As some of you have mentionned in the comments, there was a bit of confusion about the “Zelda” project for Amazon. Turns out it’s not “Legend Of Zelda” but “Zelda” (working title “Z”), about novelist Zelda Fitzgerald, played by Christina Ricci. Sorry for the false alarm, but rest assured Season Zero will continue to provide you pilot previews and reliable news about TV projects, as we’ve done before with exclusive contents like NBC’s 2015 Fall Schedule and new series key arts, the Bradley Cooper guest-starring in Limitless pilot, HBO’s order for new Jenji Kohan show or AMC’s series order for “Fear The Walking Dead”. Thanks for your understanding. Mistakes happen.
Once rumored in development for Netflix, Nintendo’s “Legend Of Zelda” live action TV series is still alive but with another streaming platform attached: Amazon.
Aiming to be a “Game of Thrones” for a family audience” as reported by The Wall Street Journal at the time of the project’s announcement, epic Zelda would be the perfect bridge between the ambitious and provocative dramas & dramedies Amazon starts delivering (as Transparent or The Man in the High Castle) and their kids’ programming offer including both animated and live action series. A pilot will be shot this August, between New York and Savannah in Georgia, and will join Amazon’s next batch of pilots for an early 2016 due date, alongside Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Casanova, Guillermo Del Toro’s Carnival Row, David E. Kelley’s Trial, possibly Bryan Cranston’s Sneaky Pete previously for CBS and The Untitled Woody Allen Project (if it ever sees the light of day). A new Zelda game for Wii U has recently been postponed to 2016. Coincidence?
