Amazon will produce a new “The Lord of the Rings” TV series, the company announced Monday. Amazon acquired multi-season, global television rights to the project. The show will be a prequel to the J.R.R. Tolkien book “The Fellowship of the Ring,” and is based on new story lines. It will be available for Amazon Prime members. There is also the potential that the show could also lead to a spin-off series.
