No TV Series
In response to John R., I can't see LOTR being made into a TV series. Star Trek started out as a TV series and successfully made the jump up to cinema. But going from cinema to TV is like a demotion. I can't see why the powers that be would make that kind of move. An equally cheesy move would be the novelizations of Middle Earth to which you referred. If I were going to attempt to extend the anticipated success of the LOTR movies, I would make a movie of The Hobbit. Prequels are in nowadays, right?
