Ever since the time-bending, body-swapping Austen Addict novels were published by Penguin in the US and Bloomsbury in the UK to great success, we have envisioned them as a TV series. Having defined the books’ web presence via creating a popular web series, a series of book trailers, and the janeaustenaddict.com book site, Rigler Creative is now developing a major TV series based on the Austen Addict novels.

After forging an option deal and collaborating with Tandem Communications, the StudioCanal company famous for its Pillars of the Earth miniseries based on Ken Follett’s internationally bestselling novel, Rigler Creative has forged new partnerships with veteran hitmakers to realize a shared vision of a TV series based on the Austen Addict books. We are excited to be working closely with best-selling author Laurie Viera Rigler on the pilot script and show bible.
