Elves coming to MTV in "Shannara" adaptation

Not sure how this is music television, but MTV has announced an adaptation of Terry Brooks' fantasy series, "Sword of Shannara." Capitalizing on the popularity of HBO's "Game of Thrones," I guess.
Based on the sprawling book series by Terry Brooks, “Shannara” will follow  Austin Butler as Wil Ohmsford, who is half elf. When he learns that he is the last of the magical Shannara family, he must set out to find the Druid who holds the key to his future. “Shannara” takes place centuries after Earth’s current civilization destroyed itself in a nuclear holocaust. MTV’s take on the saga will begin with the second book in the series, “The Elfstones of Shannara.”
