“The Chemist”, the 2016 thriller novel by “Twilight” scribe Stephenie Meyer, is set to become a TV series.
Tomorrow Studios and ITV studios are developing the series, the story of a woman who was one of the darkest secrets of a U.S. government agency so clandestine it didn’t even have a name. And 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. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.
Meyer, Meghan Hibett, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will produce.
“Stephenie is one of the most prolific authors of our time with her unique portrayal of heroines that resonate with readers and television viewers around the world, and we look forward to working with her and Meghan on bringing the The Chemist to television,” said Adelstein.
The Chemist has nearly one million copies in print in the U.S. and rights have been sold in 35 other countries.
