NBC to Adapt Book About ‘Adultescents’

NBC has optioned the rights to writer Slouching Towards AdulthoodSally Koslow’s nonfiction book about a generation of “adultescents” struggling to adjust to grown-up life–has been optioned by NBC.

According to the release, the new show will be ”a single camera half hour centered on one complicated family whose house seems to be a revolving door of occupants.”  20th Century Fox and NBC have tapped Kat Coiro to adapt the book–also executive producing along with Christy Fletcher of Fletcher & Company in NY, and 3Arts’ David Miner and Oly Obst.

Here’s more about the book, published by Viking last summer: “a witty analysis about the tension between ‘adultescents’ who have radically different ideas about life from their parents and the parents who screwed themselves by raising a generation who believe the world exists to service their happiness.”
