  • One Day at a Time Gets Well-Deserved Third Season From Netflix

Called "Cursed", this will be based on the story of King Arthur where it will focus on the Lady of the Lake.

It's the first time a Young Adult novel and a TV series based on the novel will be written simultaneously.

The TV version of the story is created by Miller and Wheeler who will executive produce. The pair secured a 10-episode deal with the streaming giant for the first season.

Cursed will tell the story of Nimue, a teenager with a mysterious gift. When her mother dies, she teams up with young mercenary Arthur in a quest to locate Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.

"I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story-and by Nimue, in particular". Wheeler is writing the book, with Miller providing full-color and black-and-white illustrations.

Wheeler seconds his partner's excitement, saying he is humbled and honored to work with the renowned artist and writer. "It can be interpreted in any number of ways", said Miller, going on to cite Disney's animated The Sword in the Stone and John Boorman's bloody Excalibur. Also, that the children's books that he inherited from his mother triggered this passion. "This project is a dream come true". "I can not think of a writer-artist who has had a more formative impact on my growth as a storyteller". "His characters, images, and dark worlds have haunted and delighted me since I was ten years old, " he noted.

Wheeler, meanwhile, co-wrote Warner Bros.' The Lego Ninjago Movie and penned the screenplay for the Shrekspinoff Puss in Boots, while also working on the latter's sequel. No release date (or time frame) for the Netflix series is being reported, but we'll likely know more when Cursed is released in book form in 2019. He was a consulting producer on the NBC series Surface, as the creator/executive producer of the critically acclaimed maxi-series Empire, and the creator/executive producer of the superhero drama The Cape for NBC.
