The premium cable channel gave the straight-to-series drama a generous 20-episode order. Based on the Jonathan Franzen novel, it will be adapted by Todd Field into a limited series that will air over the course of two years. Franzen and David Hare will also be in the writers room for the series. Craig will serve as executive producer alongside Hare, Franzen, Field, Rudin, and Eli Bush.
Originally published in 2015, Purity tells a complex story of youthful idealism, loyalty and murder. The TV series will parallel the book by focusing on intersecting storylines of multiple people from across the globe of different ages and backgrounds.
