Lucinda Riley's Seven Sisters coming to TV

Lucinda Riley's bestselling The Seven Sisters series may be coming to your television in the not too distant future.

Lucinda Riley's bestselling The Seven Sisters series may be coming to television in the not too distant future.

LA production company Raffaella Productions is to create a multi-season television series based on Pan Macmillan author Lucinda Riley's bestselling The Seven Sisters series.

Loosely based on the mythology of the star constellation known as the Pleiades (‘The Seven Sisters'), Riley's book series brings the sisters into the modern world, following five adopted sisters as they travel across the world in search of their true heritage.

Producer Raffaella de Laurentiis came across the books during production for 'What Happened to Monday?' - a sci-fi action thriller which also features a story of seven sisters – and immediately saw its appeal. She comments:

'While Riley's storyline is completely different from 'What Happened to Monday?', the book's title and the seven sisters connection compelled me to read it. Though 'What Happened to Monday?' deals with seven sisters in quite a different time and setting, the coincidence was just too much to resist. I immediately fell in love with Lucinda's story.'

Irish author Lucinda Riley wrote her first novel at twenty-four. Hothouse Flower was a Richard and Judy book club choice and became a number one international bestseller. She is now a New York Times bestselling author and her books have sold more than eight million copies in thirty-nine languages.

Jeremy Trevathan, Publisher, Pan Macmillan, comments:

'I'm so delighted that Lucinda's sweeping romantic saga of seven sisters will reach the screen. Her books are so visual that I can see how well they would work for television.'

The Seven Sisters

Each of them is handed a tantalising clue to their true heritage – a clue which takes Maia across the world to a crumbling mansion in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Once there, she begins to put together the pieces of where her story began.
