Amazon's 'Lord of the Rings' Series Could Become TV's Most Expensive Show Ever

New reports suggest that the upcoming television series that will serve as a prequel to The Lord of the Rings could become the most expensive TV show ever made!

Amazon paid $250 million just for the rights to make a show based on the J.R.R. Tolkien franchise and the company reportedly plans on spending an additional $250 million for the production and marketing costs for the first two seasons, according to Reuters.

This price tag will be three times what Amazon paid for two seasons of its other hit series, The Man in the High Castle.

HBO’s Game of Thrones is one of the most expensive shows on television currently and it costs $15 million an episode to produce, before marketing costs.
