The work of the late, lamented Terry Pratchett has been adapted from time to time in the past, but recently there's been an uptick, including Neil Gaiman bringing Good Omens, the book he wrote with the creator of Discworld to TV. And on top of a City Watch show that has been shooting (or was), the company that manages his estate, Narrativia, has struck a deal to adapt other Discworld books for the small screen.

Rhianna Pratchett, co-director of the company, and Terry's daughter, seems happy with the new deal: "Discworld teems with unique characters, witty narrative and incredible literary tropes, and we feel these should be realised on screen in a form that my father would be proud of. It’s wonderful to embark on this journey with Motive and Endeavor Content, who both perfectly share our vision to make this a reality."

No details were offered on which of the 40 titles might be adapted under the new deal, but given that Narrativia is also involved in the Watch show, we'd imagine that corner of Ankh-Morpork will go un-poked. Still, there exists a chance for a Pratchett version of the MCU.
