Welcome to the ninth edition of Scooping The Screen, our own original feature in which books on television and in film will be spotlighted. This feature will be posted at varying frequencies, so please keep checking our site for further updates (although I hope to have it out at least once a week).
~BOOKS ON TELEVISION~
MTV is developing the book Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris. If it goes forward, it will join series such a Teen Wolf and Awkward at the network. For more information, check out The Hollywood Reporter.
The CW also has The Hundred in development which is based on the forthcoming two-part series by Kass Morgan. It is about 100 juvenile delinquents who leave their city-like spaceship homes to recolonize a barely-recognizable Earth while dealing with the secrets of their pasts.
ABC Family has released the returning date for the second season of The Lying Game. It will premiere on January 8, 2013 right after the Season 3b premiere of Pretty Little Liars. Both series are based on the books by Sara Shepard. Check out the new trailer for TLG below (click on the poster!) and let me know what you think!
