THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END
TV SHOW OUT OF SILVERA'S BOOK
Adaptation news today, starting with our gorgeous Adam Silvera who will adapt his own hit book THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END (the first
ever gay YA Latino novel to ever hit number one on best seller lists) into a TV series for eOne! The 2017 book is a devastating yet uplifting story about two people whose lives change over the course of one unforgettable day. On September 5, a little after midnight, Death Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure — to live a lifetime in a single day. Even though it was
published four years ago, the book is currently the best selling YA book of 2021 in USA. In order to meet the demand, the printing numbers have gone up staggering and mindblowing 900%!

LOCH DOWN ABBEY
TO BECOME A TV SERIES
Meanwhile, the company which made NatGeo's Genius is going to turn LOCH DOWN ABBEY, which Beth Cowan Erskine wrote during the lockdown as her debut novel, into a TV series. It follows the delightfully selfish and out-of-step Inverkillen family. The trouble starts when Lord Inverkillen is
found dead in mysterious circumstances after making a disastrous deal to sell off the family’s only asset, the whiskey distillery. The inspector declares it an accident but Mrs MacBain, the savvy head housekeeper, isn’t so convinced. No one is allowed in or out of the Abbey because of a mysterious illness sweeping the country, so the residents of the house, both upstairs and downstairs, are the only suspects. The desperate state of the family’s finances are revealed to the family; without quick intervention it’s likely the estate will have to be sold to cover the debts, leaving them homeless. Most of the Inverkillens haven’t left the estate in decades and are best at doing what can only be described as nothing. With the servants increasingly out of commission because of the mysterious virus,
Mrs MacBain tries to keep everything “normal” while also conducting her own clever investigation of Lord Inverkillen’s death and in doing so uncovers a whole host of long-hidden secrets, lies and betrayals that will alter the dynamics of the household forever.
