Here is Terence Carter, the executive producer, said about his involvement in the project:
“N. K. Jemisin is one of the most creative and prolific fantasy novelists of our time. Her epic storytelling and fierce, powerful character work render complex, multicultural worlds that truly stand out in a genre too often painted with a monochromatic brush. We’re excited to partner with the team at Searchlight to bring her incredible, award-winning trilogy to life on screen.”
