CBS will adapt Koethi Zan‘s The Never List for television.
Novelist A.M. Homes will write the script. Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly will produce the drama. Here’s more about the book:
For years, best friends Sarah and Jennifer kept what they called the “Never List”: a list of actions to be avoided, for safety’s sake, at all costs. But one night, against their best instincts, they accept a cab ride with grave, everlasting consequences. For the next three years, they are held captive with two other girls in a dungeon-like cellar by a connoisseur of sadism.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday. They outlined the players behind the deal:
UTA brokered the deal on behalf of Alexandra Machinist at Janklow & Nesbit. Zan and Homes are both repped by UTA; Homes is additionally repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners; Timberman and Beverly are with CAA.
