Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me is on its way to the small screen!
I have a curse.
I have a gift.
I’m a monster.
I’m more than human.
My touch is lethal.
My touch is power.
I am their weapon.
I will fight back.
After years of rumors and rights sold back and forth, the Shatter Me series is finally getting an on-screen adaptation!
The trilogy follows a teen girl with a deadly touch through a dark, militaristic dystopia in which the government hopes to tap into her powers for their own misgivings. The series was published between 2011 and 2014. Author Tahereh Mafi will be a Consulting Producer for the show, a position that few authors are granted in dealings with Hollywood.
The series rights have been sold to ABC Signature Studios, an off-shoot of ABC Television that specializes in producing series to be sold on other cable platforms. In the past, they’ve sold titles to USA Network, TBS, ABC Family, and Lifetime.
