Megan Abbott’s Upcoming Novel THE TURNOUT Being Adapted for TV
Television rights to Megan Abbott’s upcoming novel, THE TURNOUT, which will be published by Putnam in the summer of 2021 as one of the imprint’s lead fiction titles, were acquired by the Hasbro-owned Sharp Objects producer, as reported in Deadline.
THE TURNOUT is set in a ballet school led by the Durant sisters, Dara and Marie, and Dara’s husband Charlie. Their connection is intense, forged by a glamorous but troubled family history. But after they hire Derek, a charismatic, possibly shady contractor to renovate the studio, Marie throws herself into an intense affair with him that threatens their tight bonds and brings forward family secrets until an act of violence overturns everything.
Abbott has written ten novels, including Die A Little, Queenpin and Dare Me, which was adapted for USA Network and Netflix in 2019. She was a writer on the HBO series, The Deuce.
