Mortal Instruments Coming To TV As Shadowhunters!

Cassandra Clare

When The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was released in theaters, I said “Despite its two hours-plus running time, City of Bones manages to introduce all kinds of plot points without ever giving us of the rules that cause its world to function in the way that it does.”

Now, ABC Family has ordered a The Mortal Instruments TV series called Shadowhunters. The series – which will tell the story of Clary, the 18-year old who discovers that all legends are true and that she has a crucial role to play in a world where the supernatural is real – will have the opportunity to get it right.

Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare said, of the move by ABC Family, “I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters.”

The series goes into production in May. Casting news will be released later. For more, follow the jump.

On Thursday, I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A with John Straus and Ed Decter, who have taken over the reins of USA Network’s In Plain Sight [Sundays, 10/9C], which is now in its fourth season.

We talked a bit about their background, and a bit about coming into a established series as showrunners – and got an idea of what we can look forward to during In Plain Sight’s fourth season.

After you check out what they had to say, catch this week’s episode, Crazy Like a Witness, guest-starring Bradley Whitford as a paranoid ex-military man who’s blowing the whistle on a Blackwater-type company. And remember, just because you’re paranoid, that doesn’t mean they’re not after you.
