Lifetime To Adapt Thriller Novel YOU


Lifetime has greenlit a TV adaption of thriller You from Greg Berlanti (The CW DC slate) and Sera Gamble (The Magicians).

You is described as a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager crosses paths with an aspiring writer, his answer becomes clear: anything. Using the internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way.

Berlanti and Gamble will serve as co-showrunners on You. Gamble also is set to return as a co-showrunner alongside John McNamara for Season 3 of their Syfy drama The Magicians.

Berlanti is known as the force behind The CW’s highly successful slate of DC Comics shows including Supergirl which switched networks this season to join the rest of the shows. Gamble is behind successful book adaption The Magicians which just got renewed for season 3 by Syfy.
