Another day, another batch of women-centric and created series announced. Projects from “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer and showrunners Ilene Chaiken (“The L Word”) and Liz Meriwether (“New Girl”) may be heading our way, according to reports from Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.
Deadline confirms that Tomorrow Studios is developing a TV adaptation of Meyer’s “The Chemist.” The 2016 thriller novel is about a woman working for “a U.S. government agency so clandestine it didn’t even have a name.” “When they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back but it means taking one last job for her ex-employers.”
Meyer and Meghan Hibbett are producing via Fickle Fish Films. Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will also produce.
