Elevator-pitched as “Harry Potter for grown-ups”, The Magicians is a novel about a teenager named Quentin Coldwater who discovers that the magical world he’s discovered in books is actually real when he becomes enrolled in an exclusive college for magicians in upstate New York. Quentin learns that magic is not all it’s cracked up to be, but it does prepare him and his friends for an adventure upon graduation…one that’s both thrilling and dangerous.
SyFy recently put the television adaptation of The Magicians into development. ASsociated with the production are Sera Gamble (former showrunner for Supernatural), John McNamara, and producer Michael London. Gamble and McNamara will write the script.
