TV in Development: Lemony Snicket, Little Women, & More

Netflix is developing a live-action family show based on Lemony Snicket’s The Series of Unfortunate Events. That could be fun.

ABC has a contemporary Little Women limited series in the works. Hmm. It’s about “four sisters — coming of age against the backdrop of a military scandal as their family loses its fortune and position — who find themselves at odds with the conservative and traditional society in which they live.” I . . . guess? Huh.

There’s a second show in development based on The Phantom of the Opera, though this one is ABC Family’s wheelhouse.

ABC is also working on a legal series based on Ingrid Thoft’s Fina Ludlow books.

Amazon is now looking at that adaptation of Fitzgerald’s The Last Tycoon that’s been floating around.

Syfy is adapting Arthur C. Clarke’s 3001.
