‘We Were Liars’ Series Adaptation In The Works At Amazon

The series adaptation of E. Lockhart’s YA suspense thriller We Were Liars has landed at Amazon for development.

Julie Plec and her My So-Called Company banner and Universal Television, where The Vampire Diaries co-creator is based, optioned the 2014 book as part of a trio of deals with Lockhart in the summer.

Amazon Prime Video now has taken the project in for development and has set up a mini writers room.

Plec and Roswell, New Mexico co-creator Carina Adly MacKenzie are adapting the book. Plec is writing the first episode, and MacKenzie is writing the second.

We Were Liars is a “tragic” love story and an amnesia thriller set on a privately owned island off the coast of Massachusetts.

Focusing on the the theme of consequences of one’s mistakes, the series follows the wealthy, seemingly perfect Sinclair family, who spend every summer sitting gathered on their private island. However, not every year is the same: When something happens to Cadence during the summer of her 15th year, she and the other three “Liars” — Johnny, Gat and Mirren — re-emerge two years later to prompt Cadence to remember the incident.

Plec, MacKenzie, Emily Cummins and Lockhart will exec produce with Universal Television producing.

Plec is represented by Entertainment 360 and Felker Toczek Suddleson, and MacKenzie is repped by WME and Entertainment 360.
