Netflix Nabs YA Adaptation TRINKETS, Announces Stars

Prepare for YA Netflix series TRINKETS to steal all of your attention!

Legally Blonde and 10 Things I Hate About You screenwriter Kirsten Smith‘s YA novel Trinkets is being turned into its very own series thanks to Netflix!

Trinkets follows Moe, Elodie, and Tabitha, three very different teen girls with the same treacherous habit: They’re serial shoplifters. The three form an unlikely friendship in the Shoplifters Anonymous meetings, but fuel each other’s fire in the process. Dealing with their own personal issues, the girls begin a shoplifting competition of sorts to see who can outdo the others.

Deadline also has the scoop on who will star. Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) will portray wallflower Elodie, Kiana Madeira (Sacred Lies) will play bad girl Moe, and Quintessa Swindell (Granada Nights) will play popular queen bee Tabitha.

The supporting cast includes Larry SullivanBrandon Butler, Odiseas Georgiadis, Henry Zaga, October Moore, and Larisa Oleynik.

Netflix has not announced when the series will premiere. Trinkets, the novel, is available everywhere now.

Sixteen-year-old Moe’s Shoplifters Anonymous meetings are usually punctuated by the snores of an old man and the whining of the world’s unhappiest housewife. Until the day that Tabitha Foster and Elodie Shaw walk in. Tabitha has just about everything she wants: money, friends, popularity, a hot boyfriend who worships her…and clearly a yen for stealing. So does Elodie, who, despite her goodie-two-shoes attitude pretty much has “klepto” written across her forehead in indelible marker. But both of them are nothing compared to Moe, a bad girl with an even worse reputation.

Tabitha, Elodie, and Moe: a beauty queen, a wallflower, and a burnout-a more unlikely trio high school has rarely seen. And yet, when Tabitha challenges them to a steal-off, so begins a strange alliance linked by the thrill of stealing and the reasons that spawn it.

Hollywood screenwriter Kirsten Smith tells this story from multiple perspectives with humor and warmth as three very different girls who are supposed to be learning the steps to recovery end up learning the rules of friendship.
