WITCHES OF THISTLE GROW
TO BECOME A TV SERIES
As Variety reports Village Roadshow has bought TV series rights on Lana Harper's Payback's a Witch and will develop it into WITCHES OF THISTLE GROW series which is also the name of the whole book series.
Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler will executive produce.
|Sequel From Bad to Cursed came out this May|
WITCHES OF THISTLE GROW will be a show about Emmy Harlow, a young woman with big dreams who abandoned her charming but podunk hometown to prove herself in the big city. When she’s suddenly called home nine years later to fulfill a family obligation, which, okay, happens to be arbitrating a centuries-old gauntlet, she’s forced to confront family rifts, broken friendships, and Gareth Blackmoore — a detestable but Hot AF ex who broke her heart and, it turns out, also screwed her friends: Her childhood bestie Linden Thorn, and the sexy, dangerous Talia Avramov, a bad-ass that Emmy always crushed on from afar. Reframing old friendships, reconciling with family, and enacting revenge are things Emmy used to hide from. But if she can face her fears, she can take her power back. And that’s critical. Because Emmy Harlow is a witch!
