A new fantasy series is on the way over at FX as The Hollywood Reporter says the network will begin adapting the fantasy novel The Changeling from author Victor LaValle to series. Kelly Marcell (Fifty Shades of Grey, Venom) will write the script.
The Changeling is described as a fairy tale for grown-ups. Set in a New York no one knew existed, the drama focuses on the death-defying odyssey of Apollo Kagwa and Emma Valentine as they look to find out what happened to the son who was removed from them. On their voyage, they will travel through enchanted isles and haunted woodlands, meet glowing witches, demon giants and racist cops. They will deal with the perils of personal technology and social media, toxic masculinity, the mental health of new mothers and fathers, and find out if surviving a fairy tale is as brutal as simply surviving in Trumplandia.
The series comes from Annapurna Television, the studio which is also producing the Coen Brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs for Netflix.
