Production on the 22-episodes is currently underway in New Zealand. The one-hour series is very loosely based on Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth series of novels.
Ted Raimi (aka Spider-Man 3 and SeaQuest DSV), actor and brother of Legend of the Seeker executive producer Sam Raimi, will guest star in an upcoming episode of the fantasy series Legend of the Seeker. The fourth installment, called Bounty, will showcase Raimi playing the character of Sebastian, a mapmaker skilled in the lost art of cartogromancy - the making of enchanted maps. Sebastian, a sly and clever character, once served kings but now he has been reduced to selling his services to bounty hunters.
Executive producers also announced that David de Lautour will have a recurring role on the series, joining previously announced leads Craig Horner (Richard Cypher), Bridget Regan (Kahlan), and Bruce Spence (Zedd); and recurring actors Jay Laga'aia (Chase) and Craig Parker (Darken Rahl). David de Lautour (What I Like About You and Xena: Warrior Princess) portrays Michael Cypher, brother of Richard.
From the team behind the series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess, and the studio that produces network TV including Lost and Army Wives, comes Legend of the Seeker - following the travels of woodsman Richard Cypher (Craig Horner), who must stop a ruthless tyrant from unleashing an ancient evil and enslaving the world. The series will kick off with a two-hour premiere event on November 1st 2008.
