Amazon’s making a ‘Lord Of The Rings’ TV series and it’ll cost double what the movies did

What's Fresh 21/03/2018

Amazon's LOTR series is set to be the most expensive TV series of all time. 

It'll be so expensive that it'll reportedly cost double of what the entire movie franchise cost. The movies cost just over $250 million to make where the budget for just two seasons of the ‘Lord Of The Rings’ series is $500 million. 

For reference, Game of Thrones costs on average $10 million per episode. 

The series will be made with Warner Bros, the production company that made the Peter Jackson-directed Lord of the Rings trilogy in the 2000s, and his The Hobbit follow-up more recently.
