Craig Horner (“Blue Water High”) and Bridget Regan will star in Sam Raimi’s syndicated series “Wizard’s First Rule,” which premieres in the fall, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The scripted series, an hourlong weekly from Disney-ABC Domestic Television and ABC Studios, is based on Terry Goodkind’s book “Wizard’s First Rule” and epic fantasy series “The Sword of Truth.”
Horner will star as woodsman Richard Cypher, who transforms into a magical leader and joins with a mysterious woman named Kahlan (Regan) to stop a bloodthirsty, sinister tyrant.
Production on the 22 episodes begins this month in New Zealand.
Raimi is executive producing with Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle and John Shiban.
