“The Last of the Mohicans” on HBO Max

Although many TV series have recently been given the axe due to budgetary concerns within the new Warner-Discovery merger, development continues on a live-action TV series drama based on author James Fenimore Cooper's "The Last Of The Mohicans", as HBO Max looks to attract the same audience as STARZ historical romance series "Outlander":

"...the new take is a retelling of the novel's early French and Indian Wars, that focuses on an 'unlikely' romance between 'Uncas', a young 'Mohican'...

"...and Cora, the mixed-race daughter of a British colonel..."

TV Pilot for the series was written by Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective") and Nick Osborne ("All About Steve") with Nicole Kassell ("Watchmen") attached to direct.

"The Last of the Mohicans", later retitled "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" was a 1957 TV series, running one season of 39 half-hour episodes, starring John Hart and Lon Chaney Jr.
