Girl of the Moment by Lizabeth Zindel Acquired for TV

FilmColony has acquired Girl of the Moment by Lizabeth Zindel, hoping to adapt the novel as a half-hour comedy series for television.

Development executive Melanie Donkers will produce alongside FilmColony president Richard N. Gladstein. Zindel will write for the show. The producers will pitch the project next, looking for a “perfect home” for the adaptation. Here’s more from the release:

When Lily’s dad gets fired and needs help paying for her college tuition, Lily lands a part-time job working for Sabrina Snow, the infamous daughter of a rich and powerful New York businessman and politician.”Sabrina Snow is like American royalty and Lily gets thrown into a world that most people only dream about,” says Zindel, who signed a three-book deal with Viking.”
