Even as alleged members of Nxivm including “Smallville” actress Allison Mack face charges in connection with what prosecutors say is a sex trafficking cult, a television show about Nxivm is in the works, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“File this under ‘that didn’t take long,'” Live Feed reporter Lesley Goldberg writes, adding: “Annapurna Television has optioned the rights to reporter Barry Meier’s 2017 New York Times exposé ‘Inside a Secretive Group Where Women Are Branded’ that explores the group fronted by [Keith] Raniere.”
We reported earlier today that actress Mack, known for her role as Chloe on “Smallville,” was just released on a $5 million bond as she remains under indictment for alleged sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.
“A writer for the untitled project has not yet been determined, but Annapurna Television’s hope is to adapt the investigative report as a one-hour fictionalized scripted series inspired by actual events,” Goldberg notes. “A network is not yet attached.”
