Fox21 Television Studios has reportedly optioned the rights to Jim Butcher’s long-running contemporary fantasy novel series “The Dresden Files” with plans to develop a series.

The story follows private investigator and wizard Harry Dresden, as he recounts investigations into supernatural disturbances in modern-day Chicago in his job as the world’s only ‘consulting wizard’.

He accepts supernatural cases from both human and nonhuman clients, as well as the Chicago PD’s Special Investigation unit and takes on an increasingly important role in the supernatural world at large.

Ileen Maisel and Temple Hill Entertainment are reportedly producing the series which won’t be linked to the previous 2007 adaptation which starred “Arrow’ actor Paul Blackthorne in the title role.
