Terry Pratchett and Terry Jones are collaborating on a new TV series that will feature criminal investigations in Discworld, with the city watch. It sounds awfully cool, despite the best efforts of Rod Brown, Managing Director of Prime Focus Productions to present it as cynical corporate drivel ("the globally successful Discworld franchise will readily translate to the small screen in the form of a high-end, mass appeal weekly drama series..."):
The main focus of the series will be set in the bustling, highly mercantile, largely untrustworthy and always vibrant city of Ankh-Morpork and will follow the day-to-day activities of the men, women, trolls, dwarves, vampires and several other species who daily pound its ancient cobbles (and, of course, Igor in the forensics department).
Terry commonly refers to the City Watch police force series as "the jewels in the Discworld Crown." These richly developed and highly compelling characters will feature in a 'crime of the week' episodic storyline. As each weekly adventure unfolds, viewers will be taken on a ride through Pratchett's genius imagination, with the author overseeing the creation of the series, where wild and exciting encounters with werewolves, dragons, dwarfs, trolls and golems and the classic heroes and villains, are an everyday occurrence...and where many of these characters even make outstanding crime fighters!

The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand’s previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it’s definitely a good thing. A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full. And the bigger battery means longer, more fulfilling vape sessions. In fact, you can use the Atmos R2 for up to about 25 […]
