Elizabeth Gabler's 3000 Pictures has optioned the rights to Summer of '69 by Elin Hilderbrand for a limited series. The Hollywood Reporter noted that the "famed 'beach reads' author, repped by UTA, Inkwell Management and Kleinberg Lange, has been on a Hollywood hot streak as of late, placing several stories for adaption across film and series." Gabler, Erin Siminoff and Nikki Cooper are overseeing the project for the production company.
Under her pact with ABC Signature, Ellen Pompeo has teamed with Mad Men writers André and Maria Jacquemetton to adapt Hilderbrand's Paradise book trilogy to ABC as a limited series. MRC Film acquired the feature rights to Hilderbrand's 28 Summers, and several of her books--The Identicals, The Blue Bistro and The Matchmaker--are being developed as drama series by Amblin Television and Hulu.
