Discovery has spent much of the last few years explaining why he had withdrawn from the theater industry.
It seems that now, with the launch of Discovery +, he is returning to the world of scripting.
The company’s streaming service is developing an adaptation of Girls with a bright future by Tracy Dobmeier and Wendy Katzman. It is in preparation as a mini-series.
Manhunt: Unabomber producer John Goldwyn and dusk producer Karen Rosenfelt is behind the adaptation. The pair are currently producing Dopesick together for Hulu.
The book is a dark and exciting journey through the fierce world of college admissions.
By logic, the Seattle Elliott Bay Academy admissions season is marked by glowing acceptances from top institutions and students as impressive as their parents are ambitious. But when Stanford warns the school that they are only awarding one place in the EBA for their incoming class, three mothers discover the competition is fiercer than they could have imagined.
Tech giant Alicia looks to her fortune and status to fight for her reluctant daughter’s place at the top. Kelly, a Stanford alum, uses her PTA influence and insider knowledge to chart her way for her nervous daughter. And Maren makes three: single, broke, and ill-equipped to fight the elite school community that lines up to take down its superstar. It was at this point that, a few days before the fidgetcube for applications, one of the girls suffered a near-fatal accident, which did not appear to be an accident at all.
As the community spirals out of control, three women will have to decide which lines they are willing to cross to secure their daughters’ future … and keep buried the secrets that threaten to destroy more than just college dreams.
