Welcome back to YA Onscreen! Let's hop to.
This is pretty neat: I.W. Gregorio's None of the Above (reviewed by Mandy W here) is getting a Lifetime series, written by Make It Or Break It‘s Liz Maccie and directed by Perks of Being a Wallflower's Stephen Chbosky. None of the Above is:
a coming-of-age drama that explores the story of a girl whose previous idyllic life as the homecoming queen is called into question when she discovers she is intersex.
I love this progressive new Lifetime! From that same article: Lifetime ordered a two-hour supernatural pilot called Sea Change, based on Aimee Friedman's YA novel:
Sea Change follows a strong 17-year-old girl who, after the death of her father, moves to a small Nantucket-like island to live with her estranged mother. There she is pulled into classic small-town rivalries and clashes with her mother, but quickly learns the depth of those conflicts when the island legend about dangerous Sea Walkers appears to be true, presenting a mystery for her and her family.
Sounds juicy! I love a good mystery that takes place on a cold beach, a setting that holds a very specific appeal for me. (Hello, Revenge!)
There's also scoop about a Hello Giggles comedy, a Serena Williams dance-off movie (Yes!) AND the Lifetime acquisition of Amazon's Catastrophe, a show I love more than just about anything. New Lifetime: you rule.
And check out a fun roundup of selfies from the Gilmore Girls set here.
Finally, Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train is now a movie, and you can see the trailer below! I wrote it up, and discussed why you shouldn't just think of Hawkins' mystery thriller as "Gillian Flynn-light," here.
That's it for this week! Give us your thoughts downstairs.
