A+E Media Group has partnered with the independent production company, with offices in Los Angeles and Stockholm, Stockholm Syndrome, and the English production company, Endor Productions, on the returnable drama series "Your Neighbour's Wife" based on bestselling author and award-winning journalist Tony Parsons' psychological thriller. UK screenwriters Rebecca Pollock and Kas Graham ("The Book of Ruth") are attached to write. Their feature screenplay Betty Ford was on the 2019 "Black List," with Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson attached to direct and star. "Your Neighbour's Wife" is a propulsive erotic thriller that's an edge-of-your-seat ride but with real people and life-or-death dilemmas at its heart. The partners will take the project to market shortly.
A+E Media Groups' VP of Scripted International Co-productions, Alexandra Finlay, spoke with excitement about how the work team has come together: "A+E Media Group is thrilled to be working with Kas, Rebecca, and our wonderful partners at Stockholm Syndrome and Endor to develop a binge-worthy new series based on Tony's acclaimed IP. Featuring captivating characters and zeitgeisty themes, the series showcases A+E's vision of creating powerful and relatable stories with global appeal," said.
Stockholm Syndrome's CEO Greg Lipstone praised Tony Parson's work: "We are delighted to have such amazing partners in A+E and Endor who share our vision and ambition for the show. At Stockholm Syndrome, we pride ourselves on finding great IPs with compelling characters, so from the moment we read the manuscript, we knew Tony Parsons had written a thrilling and entertaining story that needed to be brought to the screen," said.
Endor's Managing Director Carlo Dusi referred to the potential impact that the series will have on viewers: "We could not be more excited to join forces with our friends at Stockholm Syndrome and A+E Networks in bringing Rebecca Pollock and Kas Graham's compelling adaptation of Tony Parson's addictive novel to the screen. 'Your Neighbour's Wife' will seduce and shock viewers worldwide with its morally complex protagonists and intoxicating twists and turns, and we cannot wait to make it into a memorable television drama for our times," said.
