New ‘Harry Potter’ Live TV Show In Early Development For HBO Max


The streaming war is on and it has now been announced that HBO Max is at the start of development for a new “Harry Potter” live-action series.

According to The Hollywood reporter:

A live-action Harry Potter TV series is in development at HBO Max. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the executives of the WarnerMedia-backed streamer have engaged in multiple conversations with potential writers exploring various ideas that would bring the beloved property to television. Sources say general ideas were discussed in the first exploratory meetings. “

Let me stress that this is an “early” development and it might end up not happening at all. Currently, no contracts, talent, writer, etc. has not been hired or advertised. It is simply the idea phase.

Currently, HBO Max, Warner Bros. and JK Rowling control the property and would like to do more of the hugely popular IP.

Hollywood is pushing streaming content more and more with the pandemic of movie theater closures and new services appearing daily, content is in demand and the beloved IP is even more so.

Investors are also looking at what franchise studios own and don’t need to pay properly, when investing and projecting stocks as well. So it’s in HBO Max / Warner’s best interest to take advantage of the “Harry Potter” franchise now.

I’m sure we’ll have some sort of show, we don’t know where it fits in the Harry Potter timeline yet or when we get it.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.
