Re: The Dresden Files
I'd heard that it was being thought about but I didn't know that they actually had people attached to it.
The Dresden Files are very good reads - fast-paced, well characterized and somewhat wry and funny. They would make perfect tv fodder.
I'd say this is fantasy, he is a wizard with magical powers and ends up running into evil vampires, neutral vampires, demons, werewolves, the sidhe, etc.
He drives a beat-up Volkswagon Beetle, lives in a basement apartment with few modern amenities (his magic interferes with electricity), his cat and his helpful spirit who lives in a skull...
