Probably is. Most showrunners have nothing but contempt for their source materials. They see adapting a book as somesort of punishment.

Why can't studios hire showrunners who actually like the source material?

Or at least familiarize themselves with it. You don't have to love it, just do a good job with it.

I assume that doing a good job with something means that you genuinely like it on some level, otherwise you wouldn't be able to muster the passion to do it right.

I agree if we're talking about creative works. With some tasks though, it's possible to do a good job without really putting any heart into it, and some roles have a lot of such tasks.

And of course they race/gender swapped Gaal Dornic and Salvor Hardin for no reason at all (except to con people in their being "diverse and inclusive" without renouncing the "Foundation" brand).

Warder:
As far as i have seen the episodes so far.. its ok only, nothing that notable or noteworthy i care about. The characters are mostly devoid of charisma, i had some hopes for the emperor but i lost interest. Maybve ill return for the last episode, but theres better sci-fi out there i like.

Odds are, of course, outrage marketing.
Hire someone that hates the product to adapt it. That will get fans screaming and that will attract non fans out of curiosity about what they are screaming about.

Or its just standard hollywood wanting a title and sometimes not much else. Why? Who knows. From reading alot of development notes on adaptions I get the impression the execs just dont care and the producer/director wanted to do some other movie and or literally make a live action fan-fic thats barely related. The "vision".

As for Foundation. Who knows. Genderswapping characters is nothing new so could be agenda, could be just marketing said they needed some female characters to draw in women.
