Netflix is bringing the bestselling novel Firefly Lane to the screen.
Kristen Hannah’s book, first published in 20018, is a story of friendship and betrayal. It follows Kate and Tully, who meet as young girls and become inseparable best friends throughout 30 years of ups and downs, successes and failures, depression and disappointments. But when an unthinkable betrayal breaks them apart, the two women go their separate ways and it’s unclear whether they will ever be able to reconcile.
Hannah serves as co-executive producer on the series, with showrunner Maggie Friedman adapting the book. Friedman also exec produces alongside Stephanie Germain.
Netflix has ordered a 10-episode season, which marks the third of Hannah’s novels to be adapted into a film or TV show. The Nightingale and The Great Alone are both currently in production at TriStar Pictures with Michelle MacLaren set to direct The Nightingale.
