The Lighthouse production company has optioned Juno Dawson’s The London Trilogy has optioned the global television rights.
The London Trilogy consists of Clean, Meat Market, and Wonderland, which was released this past May. Dawson had this to say about The Lighthouse: “I was incredibly impressed by The Lighthouse’s ambitious vision for the world that my young heroines occupy. It’s an epic, opulent version of London ruled by socialites and social climbers on a scale that few young adult shows have attempted before.”
And it seems that The Lighthouse is very enamored with the author and her writing style as well: “Juno’s voice is intimate, provocative and insightful whilst dealing with difficult subjects such as addiction and identity. Her novels articulate the complexity of growing up in these peculiar and exciting times and are bursting with unforgettable characters and pin-sharp dialogue.”
This is just in the early stages, so no announcement for casting has been made known at this time.
Here’s the official synopses for each of the books, which have different real-world topics:
I can feel it swimming through my veins like glitter … it’s liquid gold.
When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom.
She’s wrong. Rock bottom is when she’s forced into an exclusive rehab facility.
From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady.
As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all …
It’s a dirty business getting clean …
About Meat Market:
Jana Novak’s history sounds like a classic model cliché: tall and gangly, she’s uncomfortable with her androgynous looks until she’s unexpectedly scouted and catapulted to superstardom.
But the fashion industry is as grimy as it is glamorous. And there are unexpected predators at every turn.
Jana is an ordinary girl from a south London estate, lifted to unimaginable heights. But the further you rise, the more devastating your fall …
Honest and raw, this is a timely exposé of the dark underbelly of the fashion industry in an era of #TimesUp and #MeToo. It might just be Juno Dawson’s most important book yet.
