    I think that the changes at Disney are also behind the reason why we still don't know whether or not Hulu is renewing Castle Rock.
    I am guessing that they are not, given the delay between season 2 and the lack of information, but... who knows?

    For any production house/studio/channel that seeks a stand-out long-term property (GOT/fantasy), there is little reason not to do something like DT (if they seek such a property, they've already made the decision to do so), especially with King's name attached (King's name is no guarantee, but is a risk mitigator). Risk is unavoidable, but risk is part of everything produced and isn't unique to King properties.

    For me, the question is, what's behind the decision to take DT on? If the motivation is merely to find a title to hang a series on and make a splash by packing the "DT vehicle" with the actors and tropes the network/producer is already pushing, I don't expect anything worth watching, but if the motivation is to earn accolades by doing justice to King's storytelling, we might just having something special on our hands. Flanagan has shown that he can handle paced storytelling - fingers crossed.

    I think that nowadays, the issue is all about the risks vs investment.

    If I remember correctly, Amazon Studios committed biillions for several seasons of series inspired by "Lords of the Rings" and "The three body problem".
    It all depends of the contrats, but even if King's name is attached to it, you MUST accept to lose those sums if the success is not there.

    All of that comes into account : should Amazon committ to a 1 billion+ serie, or 1,000 projects of 1 million?

    (NB : just finding out that there are different scales and that, in french and according to the scale, a billion could be 1,000 million or 1 million milllionas -_-')

    Having read Glen Mazzara's scripts for episode 1 and 2 of TDT series, we are all justified in being upset with the lack of a final script / conclusion. The screen adaptation options for TDT are endless, and we've all watched numerous "ideal" candidates for the adaptation come and go. Mazzara had an incredible vision, centered around W&G...arguably the best book in the series (inarguably my own personal favorite). It's a real shame that there's no plan to bring this series to fruition in the present day...fingers crossed for a movie or movie series that we can all appreciate.

    I was lucky enough to be allowed to watch the DT pilot and then interviewed Glen Mazzara for more than an hour. I did a vide for the first part (the episode review) and I'm currently working on the second part which involves the interview. It's in Spanish but well...for those who know the language, you might enjoy it:
