A+E Media Group has partnered with Seven.One Studios’ Endor Productions and Stockholm Syndrome on the returnable drama series, Your Neighbour’s Wife, based on bestselling author and award-winning journalist Tony Parson’s engrossing psychological thriller.
British screenwriters Rebecca Pollock and Kas Graham (The Book of Ruth) are attached to write. Their feature screenplay Betty Ford was on the 2019 Black List, with Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson attached to direct and star.
Your Neighbour’s Wife is a propulsive erotic thriller that’s an edge-of-your-seat ride, but with real people and life-or-death dilemmas at its heart: a reverse Fatal Attraction for the post Me-Too era.
In the series, Tara Carver is a woman who has it all. Happily married to her husband Christian and a devoted mother to son Marlon, she’s a dynamic entrepreneur who has co-founded a successful dating app for women. On a work trip far from home, she embarks on an impulsive one-night stand with the charismatic James Caine. However, what seems like a straightforward mistake turns into an unimaginable nightmare when James reveals himself to be a manipulative stalker. Can Tara rid herself of this man who threatens all she holds dear?
The partners will take the project to market shortly.
