“Dexter” alum Carpenter and Stelzner have optioned the rights to the book, penned by former Los Angeles Times writer Erika Hayasaki and published in January by Simon & Schuster.
“Death Class” revolves around Norma Bowe, a Ph.D and registered nurse who teaches a class in preparing for death at Kean University in New Jersey.
The course has gained national attention for Bowe’s fearless exploration of end-of-life issues and her approach to helping students (and clients of her consulting practice) use an array of techniques to come to grips with the reality of mortality.
“Norma is such a dynamic force,” said Carpenter. “Her world is rich and textured, and the results of her work are inexplicably redemptive and life-affirming.”
Stelzner is a former Hallmark Entertainment »
