Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ Will Be the Most Expensive Television Show Ever Made

Fans of Lord Of The Rings will be excited to hear that it is being made into a tv series.  Amazon was originally in a bidding war with Netflix for the rights to the Lord Of the Rings novels which Amazon won, but at a cost of 250 million dollars.

 

The series is already slated to go at least five seasons, and it won’t be cheap: Amazon expects to spend at least $1 billion on its production. That price tag will make it the most expensive TV show in history!

The contract requires Amazon to start production of the show within two years and run the show for five years, thus the 5-season commitment up front.

Not only that, but Sir Peter Jackson could be joining Amazon’s billion-dollar Lord of the Rings TV series. Negotiations are currently taking place.
