YA novel THE SEASON by Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer is headed to theaters as Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the film rights with Temple Hill Entertainment attached to produce. The project is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice set in Texas debutante society.
The story centers around a clever tomboy and soccer star who’s forced into the elite Dallas debutant season by her mother. The teen’s rebellious behavior and sharp tongue quickly put her on probation. While navigating the cutthroat debutant culture, Megan also juggles a tumultuous romance and a complicated relationship with her perfect twin sister. The novel was published last summer by Vikings Books.
Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce. The pair has found success previously bringing YA adaptations The Twilight Saga, The Maze Runner, The Fault in Our Stars, and Power Rangers to the big screen. Jacklyn Huntling Swatt will oversee for Temple Hill.
Hansen Jacobson brokered the deal.
