Imagine a world where people can manipulate fire and wind, light and darkness. All this and more were born out of Leigh Bardugo’s best selling books, and are now the center of the new Netflix Original series, Shadow and Bone. How did the writers, cast, and crew create original material through the ultimate crossover between storylines and characters?

After you watch all of the first season, host Brandon Jenkins (Mogul; Complex) takes you through the adaptation process, from novels, to script, and all the way to your screen.
