Writers Added to the Live-Action Sword Art Online Series

American independent production company Skydance Television has announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement with Patrick Massett and John Zinman for the pair to serve as writers, showrunners, and executive producers on Skydance television projects, including Skydance’s live-action Sword Art Online (SAO) series.

Massett and Zinman are joining Laeta Kalogridis in writing the pilot script, and are executive producing along with Kalogridis and Skydance’s Marcy Ross, David Ellison, and Dana Goldberg.

Skydance Television President Ross says, “We’re already deep in development with Patrick, John, and Laeta on our larger than life Skydance SAO series, in which we aim not only to satisfy the franchise’s enthusiastic sci-fi and anime fan base but also to appeal to new TV audiences the world over.”

Skydance announced the series adaptation of Reki Kawahara’s Sword Art Online light novels in August 2016.
