Chelsea Cain, bestselling thriller series is in development with FX to transform her books into a television series. Heartsick involves a serial killer who is in a relationship—of sorts—with a police detective Archie Sheridan. Trouble is, the serial killer is a female, named Gretchen Lowell, a fresh twist on the serial killer plot. And their relationship is based on her kidnapping and almost killing him. Not exactly the stuff of romance. Heartsick is being adapted by Mikko Alanne (5 Days of War) and produced by Geyer Kosinski (Magic City).
She recently tweeted: “FX, of course, is home to Justified, Sons of Anarchy, and American Horror Story. They make great TV & buy fake blood in bulk.”
Cain will also be the keynote speaker at the fifth annual Summer in Words Writing Conference which runs from June 15-17 at Cannon Beach, Oregon. Here keynote address is How to Murder For Money.
