The Hollywood Reporter stated the scripted series is an hourlong weekly from Disney-ABC Domestic Television and ABC Studios, and is based on Terry Goodkind's book "Wizard's First Rule" and the fantasy series "The Sword of Truth."
Wizard's First Rule stars Craig Horner as woodsman Richard Cypher, who transforms into a magical leader and joins with a mysterious woman named Kahlan (Bridget Regan) to stop a bloodthirsty, sinister tyrant. The series has been cleared in more than 95% of the country for its fall launch. Twenty-two episodes will be produced for the 2008-09 season.
