SLATE OF UK TV PROJECTS
|Joe Barton will adapt Half Bad|
|Sophie Petzal will adapt Turton's book|
THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE best selling novel by Stuart Turton will be turned into a seven episode series by Sophie Petzal: it is a mind bending murder mystery. All set within the grounds of a sprawling country estate, this high concept thriller presents an intriguing puzzle – how do you solve a murder when every time you are getting close to the answer, you wake up in someone else’s body?
LOCKWOOD & CO will be another popular book series to be turned into an eight episode show. Joe Cornish will adapt Jonathan Stroud's novels set in London, where the most gifted teenage ghost hunters venture nightly into perilous combat with deadly
spirits: amidst the many corporate, adult-run agencies one stands alone: independent of any commercial imperative or adult supervision – a tiny startup, run by two teenage boys and a newly arrived, supremely psychically gifted girl, a renegade trio destined to unravel a mystery that will change the course of history!
