The Nine Lives of Chloe King by Celia Thomson to Be Adapted into ABC Family TV Series

Today ABC approved a new show based on Celia Thomson‘s series, The Nine Lives of Chloe King. The YA book series already has a dedicated online following, including the fan-made video embedded above.

According to TV Guide, the show goes into production this fall. It will be produced by Dan Berendsen, who also worked on Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Here’s more about the books: “She did her homework and got good grades, but she wasn’t afraid to ditch class sometimes to hang out with her best friends. She slept at home, but otherwise avoided all human contact with her mom. The usual stuff. Then she fell from San Francisco’s highest tower, and her life changed. For starters, she died. And then, she woke up. Now Chloe’s life is anything but normal: Suddenly guys are prowling around her, she’s growing claws, and someone’s trying to kill her. Luckily for Chloe, she still has eight lives to go.” (Via io9)
