Syfy has announced a big one. The network has greenlit The Magicians, a modern epic fantasy based on the trilogy of novels by Lev Grossman.
The series stars Jason Ralph (above) as Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student who enrolls in Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy and, along with his classmates, discovers the magic they’re talking about – the magic they’d read about as children – is real.
John McNamara and Sera Gamble, who wrote the pilot, will executive produce. The Magicians begins filming in July. For more, follow the jump.
