Amazon Studios Goes Next Level With Lord Of The Rings TV Show Security

Amazon Studios Goes Next Level With Lord Of The Rings TV Show Security

Anyone who's been following the development of the Lord of the Rings TV show will know that there's not a lot to be said about the plot because the producers are keeping all the details on lockdown.

Unsurprisingly the fandom's already hard at work coming up with all sorts of theories, so Amazon Prime's taking no chances to ensure the plot details remain in the depths of Middle-earth until it's finally ready for release.

But perhaps their recent measures are a tad much? In a recent update interview with The Hollywood Reporter, chief of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, described how they're keeping those secrets safe:

She said: "There's a fantastic writers room working under lock and key. They're already generating really exciting material. They're down in Santa Monica.

"You have to go through such clearance, and they have all their windows taped closed. And there's a security guard that sits outside, and you have to have a fingerprint to get in there, because their whole board is up on a thing of the whole season."

Unreal - only the ring bearers themselves would manage to make it past that level of security. Although you might think it's a tad OTT, high profile shows such as Game of Thrones and Marvel properties have introduced similar strategies to ensure their scripts don't leak ahead of time.

Lord of the Rings Amazon Series Will 'Include Sauron, Galadriel and Elrond'

And with the global success surrounding Peter Jackson's adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy novels, the Lord of the Rings TV show is about as high profile as you can get - the fandom members have been jumping on any tiny detail released like Gollum to his ring.

Speaking of which, there was an excited furor when Amazon Prime's official Twitter account for the series recently hinted that the show could be a prequel to the original trilogy.

The post said: "Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone," which fans think could mean the series will be set before the movies.

The quote comes from an inscription on the Dark Lord Sauron's One Ring and was accompanied by a marked map of Middle-earth, as well as a link to an interactive version of the map for people to explore.

Could this mean a prequel or could it just be more fuel for the hype train? Either way, the fans are excited and for good reason - Amazon confirmed last year that it planned to make five seasons of the show, meaning we'll be delving back into Middle-Earth for longer than ever before.
