Netflix to Adapt “Firefly Lane” Into Series

Netflix orders Firefly Lane series based on best-selling novel of the same title.

According to multiple outlets, the streaming giant has put out a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes of Firefly Lane. This will be the third adaptation of author Kristin Hannah’s novels currently in production following The Nightingale and The Great Alone.

Maggie Friedman has been tapped to pan the script of a story that follows the friendship between two women over the course of 30 years. Friedman will also serve as showrunner and executive producer alongside Stephanie Germain.

Firefly Lane follows Kate and Tully, two women who meet as young girls and become inseparable best friends through thirty years of ups and downs, successes and failures, depression and disappointments. When an unthinkable betrayal breaks them apart, the two women go their separate ways and it’s unclear whether they will ever be able to reconcile.
