Unfortunately, it's impossible for a TV series to stick to the plots of books. TV moves at a different pace so the ideal TV series should remain true to the characters and the concept while happily going in whatever direction is going to keep it on the air longest.

I asked Jim Butcher how he felt about the Dresden Files TV show once and he said "regardless of anything else, it's an hour long, weekly commercial for my books and that's always good!" Butcher wasn't on the NYT bestseller list until it was announced that there was going to be a TV show.

Also, during the tour I did talk to a few people in Hollywood--no excitement now, it was just idle conversation in a bookstore and that's probably All it will ever be--but at least there's some interest. Must wait and see....
