As we eagerly wait for season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale, we are thrilled to hear that Handmaid’s Tale creator Bruce Miller is adapting another incredible literary thriller of female empowerment into a new series!
MGM/UA Television purchased the rights to Ivy Pochoda’s new thriller novel, These Women. Bruce Miller– the creator, executive producer and show-runner of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning series The Handmaid’s Tale— will be overseeing its development and we can’t wait to see what he does with it!
Ivy Pochoda creates a kaleidoscope of loss, power, and hope featuring five very different women whose lives are steeped in danger and anguish. They’re connected by one man and his deadly obsession, though not all of them know that yet. There’s Dorian, still adrift after her daughter’s murder remains unsolved; Julianna, a young dancer nicknamed Jujubee, who lives hard and fast, resisting anyone trying to slow her down; Essie, a brilliant vice cop who sees a crime pattern emerging where no one else does; Marella, a daring performance artist whose work has long pushed boundaries but now puts her in peril; and Anneke, a quiet woman who has turned a willfully blind eye to those around her for far too long. The careful existence they have built for themselves starts to crumble when two murders rock their neighborhood.
If you’re looking for a thrilling novel to keep you entertained for the upcoming long weekend, These Women will keep you on the edge of your seat!
