After finding "considerable success with its adaption of Sally Rooney's Normal People," Hulu "is gearing up to adapt the author's Conversations With Friends into a 12-episode drama," Indiewire reported. The project will be directed by Lenny Abrahamson, with Alice Birch as lead writer.
Beatrice Springborn, Hulu's v-p of content, said Rooney "perfectly and beautifully captures the complicated dynamics of relationships in her stories. After bringing that to life in Normal People to an overwhelmingly positive response, we are honored to do the same with Conversations With Friends. We are excited to continue our creative partnership with Sally, Element Pictures, Lenny and the BBC, which has been a dream collaboration."
