Crowdfunding for Beverly Jenkins’ Deadly Sexy
Check out this awesome video featuring Beverly Jenkins as she talks about the film project, and the importance of diversity being showcased in 2018. We would love to see this story on the big screen!
New Passionflix Projects from Jennifer L. Armentrout and Julie Kenner
Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wicked is in the script stage at Passionflix! The streaming service is also working to adapt J. Kenner’s Dark Pleasures. While we impatiently wait for these upcoming releases, we’re keeping our festive holidays vibes alive by watching Jill Shalvis’s The Trouble with Mistletoe. (If the hero looks familiar to you, that’s because HE IS! You’ve already swooned over Thomas Beaudoin in Lifetime’s The Spirit of Christmas.)

Stephanie Bond’s Coma Girl Heading to TV
We love Stephanie Bond’s books, so we are excited to hear that her self-published Coma Girl, where “the victim of a tragic event lies in a hospital bed at the mercy of dysfunctional family, friends, and caretakers who think she can’t hear them” — has been optioned by CBS. We can totally see this as a TV show! Writers are already attached with Stephanie consulting, and we’d like this on our fall 2018 schedule, thanks.
Nancy Naigle’s Hope at Christmas to Hallmark
Here’s how our beloved holiday movies begin: with an option! Nancy Naigle’s Hope at Christmas, in which a divorcée returns home with her daughter for the holidays, meeting a kind single dad who moonlights as the local Santa has been picked up by Crown Media and Hallmark for their holiday season programming. IF THIS ISN’T A HALLMARK MOVIE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IS. We cannot wait to watch this while making cookies and drinking egg nog.
