CBS Studios to Adapt The Lost Girls into a TV Show

CBS Studios is developing a television show adaptation of the 2010 travel memoir, The Lost Girls. Hollywood showrunner Rebecca Sinclair will serve as both a writer and an executive producer.

The book chronicles the globe-trotting adventures of Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett and Amanda Pressner. Prior to publishing the book, the three friends wrote about their journeys online at the Los tGirls World blog. The writing trio currently have a second book project in-the-works.

Here’s more from Deadline: “The TV project, which adds a mystery element to the story in the book, centers on four very different 20-something American women, each at a point of crisis, who decide to escape their lives and their country, and go abroad.  While in Cambodia, the wanderers bond, happy to find friends who are equally lost. But when one of the women vanishes under mysterious circumstances and the remaining three pledge to find her, they embark on the real journey, a quest that leads them off the beaten path, around the globe and on the road to finding themselves.”
