I am still waiting for that blue police box to take me on a star trek to a galaxy far, far away. Until then I will have to content myself with fantasy and sci-fi adventures from books, movies, and TV shows.

Terry Gilliam is adapting his 1981 movie Time Bandits into a TV series for Apple’s streaming service. The idea for a series has been around since at least 2015 and just last summer Apple made a deal to adapt the film to the small screen. The project is produced by Anonymous Content, Paramount Television, and Media Rights Capital.

The Time Bandits movie featured the adventures of 11-year-old history buff Kevin and 6 time-traveling dwarves who steal from historical figures. It grossed $42.2 million dollars and has an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Gilliam co-wrote, produced, and directed Time Bandits, which was the first in his “Trilogy of Imagination,” followed by Brazil (1985) and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988).

Waititi & Gilliam

Gilliam is a non-writing executive producer on the TV series. Now comes news that Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarök) will co-write the first episode of the series and direct the pilot. He will also act as an executive producer along with Gilliam and Dan Halsted. Waititi is also directing an episode of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

Apple has not yet ordered the series so the pilot is for a “potential series.”
