TV seems to have stolen a bit more fire from Olympus, as Julia Roberts becomes the latest Hollywood A-lister making the leap to series TV. The Normal Heart star will lead an adaptation of Maria Semple’s Today Will Be Different, as developed with Annapurna’s new TV venture.
Last month, the Los Angeles Times began a six-part story on Kelli Peters, a school volunteer and PTA member in the community of Irvine, California who became the unwitting subject of a bizarre conspiracy to ruin her family’s name. A few days later, Peters’ tell-all book, I’ll Get You! Drugs, Lies, and the Terrorizing of a PTA Mom, hit bookshelves across the country. It wasn’t long before the film rights to the book were shopped around in Hollywood, and now it appears a major star is interested in playing the role of Peters herself.
