The Dark Tower TV Series Gets TWD Showrunner

One time The Walking Dead show runner Glen Mazzara has been hired to as show runner of The Dark Tower TV series. The series is expected to focus on the back story of Roland Deschain which was covered in the Wizard and Glass novel along with most of Marvel's comics around the series. Idris Elba is signed on for the series but I doubt in a major role but probably more to introduce the series since most of the story is Deschain as a teenager. The hiring seems to be a show of confidence from Sony in light of the overwhelmingly bad reviews for the movie which best be summed up as overly simplified and bland.
