Warner Bros. adapting Private book series by Kate Brian
Reed Brennan is coming to the silver screen. Private, the young adult book series by Kate Brian, is being adapted by Warner Bros. and Alloy Entertainment, EW confirmed.
Stacy Rukeyser, a writer and executive producer on Lifetime’s breakout series UnREAL, will adapt the franchise.
Brian’s 14-installment series details the life of Reed, a teenager who enters the prestigious Easton Academy, where her life becomes mired in drama, mystery, and hard relationship decisions.
In 2009, Alloy Entertainment created a 20-episode web series based on Private. It covered the series’ first four books: Private, Invitation Only, Untouchable, and Confessions. In addition to the 14 novels, the Private canon also includes two prequel books and six spin-offs.
Alloy’s Les Morgenstein (Vampire Diaries) and Elysa Dutton (Idiocracy) will produce the project.
