Elizabeth Cantillon to Develop ‘I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad’ by Souad Mekhennet


Deadline reported, The Cantillon Company and Brillstein Entertainment Partners are teaming up to develop novel I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad by Souad Mekhennet.

It would be a drama series based on the life and career of the author who’s a Washington Post correspondent, German-born Muslim journalist. 

You can read the full details below:

I Was Told To Come Alone will be a contemporary hourlong drama series, which follows Mekhennet as she pursues Jihadi leaders around the globe, putting her own life on the line to expose the complicated truths behind the War on Terror. While she explores the devastating effects of terrorism, she also finds humor and levity in the most harrowing of moments. From fending off marriage proposals from militant jihadists to worrying about the kinds of books her kidnappers might find on her Kindle, Mekhennet offers a new perspective that is distinctly feminine and profoundly human.
