Book To TV Adaptations To Look Forward To In 2023


Naomi Alderman’s dystopian science fiction novel “The Power” is getting an adaptation that will stream on Amazon Prime Video. Working on the project as executive producers are Jane Featherstone from Sister Pictures, along with Reed Morano and Alderman. The story takes place in a world where all teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people at will. Soon enough, nearly every woman possesses the same power. Now, nothing will ever be the same. “The story is a global one, about the lives of women and men everywhere in the world, so I’m hugely excited that The Power will be sparking conversation and debate essentially … everywhere. We’re going to make something revolutionary and, dare I say it, electrifying,” says Alderman (via Deadline). Stars include Toni Collette, Auliʻi Cravalho, John Leguizamo, Toheeb Jimoh, Ria Zmitrowicz, Halle Bush, Nico Hiraga, Heather Agyepong, Eddie Marsan, and others.

The project has been delayed multiple times. First, the project was set to start production in late 2019 in Georgia, but withdrew due to the newly signed “heartbeat” bill (via Time). Then, filming began in early February 2020, but was shut down in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic (via Deadline). With the series back in production, there’s hope for a 2023 release.
