The pair who had a huge success in developing Cecily von Ziegesar’s “Gossip Girl” book series into a TV hit are at it again.

“…Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are taking on the ‘Calendar Girl’ book series,” writes our friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com “ABC Signature, ABC Studios’ cable division, has optioned Audrey Carlan’s steamy 12-book series for Schwartz and Savage’s studio-based Fake Empire to develop for television.”

The story adds, “Launched last year by Waterhouse Press, Calendar Girl — tipped by USA Today as ’the next Fifty Shades’ — follows lead character Mia Saunders, who becomes a high-priced adult escort in order to pay off the gambling debts of her father. Each of the 12 books takes place in a different city with a new client during a different month of the year.”
