This is according to Deadline, which reports that there were multiple bidders for the series. Hulu--in the midst of a push for more original content--came out on top, but this still doesn't guarantee the series will make it to air. The report notes that Myst has a script-to-series commitment, meaning that, if the script is approved, it will go directly to series (as opposed to a pilot episode being made).
The adaptation of Myst was first announced last year when developer Cyan Worlds and Legendary Entertainment agreed to a deal. At the time, no details were forthcoming regarding what the series would be about.
Now, Deadline says it'll feature a story written by Evan Daugherty (Divergent, 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) that "will explore the origins of the island of Myst from the game where a man wakes up on a mystery island with absolutely no idea who he is, where is, or how he got there." Daugherty is also set to write the screenplay for a new Tomb Raider film.
GameSpot has reached out to Cyan to find out more and will report back with anything we learn.
