From Books to Boob Tube

This is an interesting item from In Reference to Murder:
The U.K. production firm Castlefield has acquired the TV rights to Cara Hunter’s bestselling crime novels featuring Detective Inspector Adam Fawley. Although the company has yet to find a home for the adaptation, it’s planning the series around Hunter’s four books, with each novel following DI Fawley as he investigates a domestic tragedy or crime that demands answers from the victim’s family and friends. In the first book, Close to Home, he looks into the disappearance of an eight-year-old girl from a family party.
As FantasticFiction explains, “Cara Hunter is the pen name of an established British novelist who lives and works in Oxford.”

Meanwhile, January Magazine carries word that Welsh-born Canadian author Cathy Ace’s latest novel, The Wrong Boy, “has been optioned for television by UK indie Free@Last TV (Agatha Raisin).

“C21 Media reports that, among new projects the company is embarking on is, ‘The Wrong Boy, a three-part thriller being adapted from Welsh author Cathy Ace’s novel of the same name. It focusses on a small Welsh hamlet disturbed by the discovery of human remains, and the many twists in the investigation that follows.’”
