Newsflash – Wicked is headed to TV


No – not the musical.
While there is a movie deal for the musical in development over at Universal, this project is a non-musical adaptation of the hit novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. The book is, of course, where the musical got its beginning, but this eight-hour miniseries would stick a bit closer to the themes in the novel, which has a noticeably more political slant than the musical. Actress Salma Hayek is producing the miniseries with her partner Jose Tamez through their company Ventanarosa Productions.
