Jessica Chastain Set to Produce Adaptation of Alice Feeney Novel HIS & HERS for TV


Actress Jessica Chastain has taken on a new project in the role of producer with an upcoming series that will be adapted from the Alice Feeney novel, His & Hers. Chastain’s production company, Freckle Films, has acquired the rights to the story, which she will produce along with Kristen Campo and Kelly Carmichael. Variety reports the following synopsis for the thriller:

The novel tells the story of DCI Jack Harper and BBC newsreader Anna Andrews, whose paths cross for the first time following their divorce when a woman is found murdered in their hometown. Anna is reluctant to cover the case and Jack becomes suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.

This will be the second Feeney novel adapted for TV, as another of her novels, Sometimes I Lie, is currently being adapted at Warner Bros. and Fox with Ellen DeGeneres producing, and Sarah Michelle Gellar set to star. Feeney said of the new partnership:

“The last three years have been such a wonderful whirlwind and I’m still pinching myself,” Feeney said. “I’m so thrilled to be working with Jessica Chastain, Kristen Campo, and the team at Endeavor Content. I love what they have planned for ‘His & Hers,’ and I can’t wait to see Anna Andrews and Jack Harper brought to life on screen.”

These both sound like great projects, and great stories for TV. Are you interested in either of these TV series?
