Book to TV Adaptations

https://www.bookstr.com/article/book-to-tv-adaptations-to-look-out-for-in-2017/2982?trr_article_source=post-ribbon-module

Often books get turned into movies and occasionally into a television series.  This is a list of those that will be coming out this year.  It is interesting to see which authors have had thier material picked up, JK Rowling; Niel Gaiman; Lemony Snicket; Margaret Atwood; and more.  Another tidbit is that a number of these are being created by ‘non-traditional’ networks.  BBC is picking up Rowling’s series (Written as Robert Galbraith), Starz is premiering the Gaiman Series, Netflix Lemony Snicket; Jay Asher; L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables); and Hulu is adapting A Handmaids Tale by Atwood.

Okay, Starz and BBC are probably not considered non-traditional networks but I would have thought that Niel Gaiman would be produced by the BBC.

This will be a very interesting year for television and books.
