I wasn't aware until now that there was a TV show planned based on the attraction, but I looked it up, and, although I have some reservations, I hope it's well done and entertaining.

I'll admit, though, some related news is a tad... alarming:
Thunder Mountain is not the first Disney ride to receive the Hollywood treatment. The Pirates of the Caribbean attractions has spawned four blockbuster features starring Johnny Depp, while The Haunted Mansion, The Matterhorn, The Country Bears, Mission to Mars and Jungle Cruise and lately Mr. Toad's Wild Ride have been or are in development for the big screen.
The ultimate theme park movie might be Disney's Magic Kingdom, which is set entirely in the park. That project is being developed by writer Michael Chabon and director Jon Favreau.
