ABC has revealed plans to adapt some familiar material, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The network has projects in the works to bring versions of the novel “The Nanny Diaries” and the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer” to the small screen.
“The Nanny Diaries,” a 2003 novel by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, is being adapted as a drama series by “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. The network is reported to be close to ordering a script.
The novel was previously adapted into a 2007 film starring Scarlett Johansson.
“Lincoln Lawyer” is based on the Matthew McConaughey film from Lionsgate and will be written by John Romano and Michael Connelly.
