Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will adapt The Witcher novels for Netflix
Lauren Shmidt Hissrich, the co-writer and executive producer of Marvel's Daredevil and The Defenders will write the screenplay for The Witcher series, realised by Netflix.

Netflix is developing and producing a new English language drama series based on The Witcher, the globally popular fantasy saga from Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, that has entranced legions of fans worldwide. Known collectively as the Witcher Saga, Sapkowski’s eight novels and story collections center on "witchers" -- hunters who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle deadly monsters. The New York Times bestselling books have spawned a major video game franchise and have been translated into over 20 languages.

Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise, Ben-Hur, The Expanse) and Jason Brown (The Expanse), partners at the Sean Daniel Company are executive producers, along with Tomek Baginski (Oscar nominated short The Cathedral, BAFTA winning The Fallen Art, Ambition) and Jarek Sawko (The Fallen Art, Another Day of Life) from Platige Image, the Polish production and visual effects company. 

Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of the saga, will serve as a special consultant on the series who can influence the final form of the tv series.
