Serena Valentino’s Villains book series, centered on famous antagonists from Disney’s animated films, is being adapted into a tv show titled Book of Enchantment for the studio’s upcoming streaming service Disney +.
Valentino’s books, which focus on characters such as Ursula, Maleficent, and the Beast, will be adapted by Michael Seitzman, who has previously worked on ABC’s Quantico and CBS’s Code Black. He will also serve as showrunner and producer via Maniac Productions, his company based at ABC Studios and which he runs with Christina Davis. The project comes from ABC Signature Studios.
According to unconfirmed report on Deadline, Book of Enchantment is expected to be “an epic universe that weaves classic Disney tales told in a brand new way.” Seitzman is said to have been working on the series for the past six months creating a pilot script and bible.
