Annapurna Television optioned the rights to the book “Accepted” by Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz, which is set to publish later this year, according to Deadline.
“The story is rife with drama, including photoshopped images of students, fake SAT proctors, Instagram influencers, and lots of extremely rich and famous people, including actresses Felicity Huffman, who has since said she intends to plead guilty, and Lori Loughlin, who pleaded not guilty,” according to Slate.1 comment on this story
Back in March, the FBI named about three dozen people for their part in the college admissions scandal. Parents — including Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli — are accused of paying bribes for their children to be accepted into college, according to Variety.
D.V. DeVincentis (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”) will develop the series.
“It’s tempting to think that Huffman and Loughlin could play themselves in the scripted series — but that’s not realistic, is it?” according to TV Line.
