Fresh off the tremendous success of HBO’s Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty has a new novel being adapted for the small screen! The rights to Moriarty’s novel Three Wishes have been optioned by Everywhere Studios for a series that would be written by Younger’s Lila Feinberg and is supposedly being developed at Netlifx.

Much like Big Little Lies, Three Wishes features some strong female leads who find themselves dealing with way more than they bargained for. It “follows three wildly different sisters as their lives intertwine and unfold around their glamorous Manhattan wedding weekend that ends in a shocking tragedy. When a scandalous secret emerges, the tight-knit bond among the sisters is tested as they unravel a mystery that ripples throughout each of their lives.”

Moriarty will serve as executive producer along with EveryWhere’s Tom Mazza and David Calvert-Jones. EveryWhere’s new head of development Karen Glass will co-produce.

As soon as Karen came on board, she identified this story as one that would have broad audience appeal and provide three strong roles for female actors. We are aiming to move forward with production in 2019,” said EveryWhere Studios CEO Mazza. [/row]

This will be the second of Moriarty’s seven international best-selling novels being adapted for the small screen. Big Little Lies premiered on HBO last year to critical and audience acclaim. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley, Big Little Lies follows a group of mothers in Monterey, CA who become wrapped up in a murder investigation. The series went on to win the Emmy Award for Best Limited Series as well as acting awards for Kidman and Dern. It’s currently filming its second season where Meryl Streep is set to appear.
