The Sam Raimi-produced syndicated series “Wizard’s First Rule” has been renamed to “Legend of the Seeker” and the first promo is now online here.
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.”
Craig Horner will star as woodsman Richard Cypher, who transforms into a magical leader and joins with a mysterious woman named Kahlan (Bridget Regan) to stop a bloodthirsty, sinister tyrant.
Raimi is executive producing with Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle and John Shiban.
“Legend of the Seeker” premieres in the fall.
