Is blood thicker than anything?
Night’s Edge–described as a “female-driven vampire novel”–will not even reach book stores for another two months, but a small-screen adaptation is already underway, according to a report on Deadline.
The novel by Liz Kerin–available June 20–is in early development at Freeform and 20th Television. Kerin will co-write the show, with Keto Shimizu and Jac Schaeffer (WandaVision) serving as executive producers.
There’s no word at this early stage about casting or directorial choices or production schedules.
In the novel, having a mom like Izzy meant Mia had to grow up fast–with no friends and definitely no dating, according to the description. The most important rule was: Tell no one about Izzy’s hunger–the kind only blood can satisfy.
But now that Mia is in her 20s, she wants a different life–one where she doesn’t have to worry about anyone discovering their terrible secret. And when she meets rebellious musician Jade, Mia dares to hope she’s found a way to leave her home–and mom–behind. This may be her only chance to get out alive.
