    Looks like Amazon Prime have won the bidding to create a TV series based on Middle Earth. Nothing to do with LOTR or The Hobbit so could be set before or after. Some rumours online are talking about the The Silmarillion

    One of the many sites talking about it

    Maybe it will be a way back for GW and their middle earth ranges

    I have seen said Silmarillion speculation but the rights to LotR are held by Middle-earth Enterprises, whilst the rights to The Silmarillion (and all posthumous releases) are held by the Tolkien estate. So buying the rights to the one not only doesn’t give the rights to the other, you can’t get them as part of the same deal. Complicating matters further is Christopher Tolkien’s unwillingness to do this kind of licensing, which is why we’ve only seen games and movies for The Hobbit and LotR, which is he doesn’t control.

    hoping this will be a good one to many series die before the really get started.
