IIRC the TV series that was announced as in development was worded in such a way that if the movie is a success then it'll tie into the movie the way that the Marvel shows tie into the Marvel movies, but if the movie is a flop it can go forward as its own thing. So I'd assume a Realms show. They're also hoping to make multiple shows - I think everyone wants to have the Marvel model of film and TV shows working in concert.

Here's an article from January about it - Rawson Marshall Thurber To Spearhead Flagship ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ TV Series For eOne They use the words "complement the film series" which I suspect means "it doesn't tie in directly, unless the film does well, in which case we'll figure out how to make it tie in directly".
I can't imagine a D&D setting better fit for live action than Eberron. Its entire ethos is "mash up LotR and Indiana Jones and The Maltese Falcon" and they want to stick with the most vanilla, derivative setting on Earth. It's boggles.

I remember not too long ago a multi-page thread on how confusing Eberon would be to viewers because it has magic trains.

Unless that changes we're unlikely to see film studios take much risk with big budget properties or potential franchises - the risks are being taken by smaller studios like A24 (who, not coincidentally, have had an Earthsea TV series in development for a while now - there's a title and a studio that should lead to some fantasy on the serious side of things).
!!! Wowzers, is that ever something I didn't know I needed until I heard about it.

I see a trailer on YouTube:

Edit: Whoops, taken down already. But it was good!
Edit2: If you see a black dragon spewing acid on fighting armies and a white owlbear, that is it.
