I wish Fox21 luck. How many seasons are planned? How to split up a book, and how many books in each season. The big problem is going to be where to put the episode breaks. Realistically one book per season is going to make it waaay too long for television. A film series based on an already planned out gigantic book series. Supernatural runs for 13 seasons, maybe adds 14. Bones was done after 12 seasons. And those two are exceptionally long running shows that had a underlying story arc. Now they want an even bigger one with Dresden Files? I don't know, like I said, I wish them luck but won't hold my breath.
The Bosch approach has worked well - do some creative rewriting incorporating plot lines from 2 or 3 books, I believe with Connelly's close involvement. Once the series has established itself, cut to 1 book per season (Angels Flight).

The first Dresden Files failed despite a decent cast and decent writing that incorporated some book plot lines and characters. Too episodic by today's standards but understandable in 2007. Maybe it was just too soon - with today's much larger fan base it might have gotten enough traction to go on...

My main worry is that they get Butcher involved in editing or writing scripts which slows down the release of the future books even more as he gets busier.

True, and I have plenty of doubts, but having been through it before I would hope Butcher would demand and get what it takes to make it work...

I would go for two books per season. That would work well.
