I have amazing, happy-making news, and I’m going to attempt to remain professional throughout this blog post. Ahem.
Clarity has been optioned for television!
Kim Harrington's CLARITY, in which a teenage girl uses her visions to track a murderer and defend her brother's innocence, to Warner Brothers TV by Shari Smiley at CAA, on behalf of Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.
I’ve actually been sitting on this news for months, waiting for things to get signed and official. And every time someone mentioned to me, “I think Clarity would make a great TV show,” I smiled and nodded, but inside I was all ZOMG ME TOO I WISH I COULD TELL YOU MY SECRET BUT I CAN’T.**
And now I can! Yay!
So, this doesn’t mean Clarity will definitely become a show. (BUT HOW FREAKING AWESOME WOULD THAT BE?***) It’s just optioned right now. A gazillion other things have to happen for the show to become reality (like a pilot script, casting, shooting the pilot, a network pick-up, etc.). All these things I know nothing about and have nothing to do with. But, seriously guys, our Clare could not be in better hands. Warner Brothers Television is a TV powerhouse. Their production history includes some of my all-time favorites: The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars, and a gazillion other awesome shows. I am thrilled beyond words.****
Giveaway alert! Closed! Dana is the winner! To celebrate my good news, I’m giving away a signed/personalized hardcover of Clarity to anyone, anywhere. To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know what you think about the possibility of a Clarity TV show. Winner picked at random on 11/22.
*Okay, that wasn’t professional.
**Admittedly, the use of ZOMG isn’t professional either.
***I would be this show’s biggest fangirl.
****I am dancing in my living room.
