Werner Film Productions (The Newsreader, Secret City, Surviving Summer, Crazy Fun Park) has secured the rights to Infidelity & Other Affairs, in a deal negotiated by Thames & Hudson Australia, with plans to develop it for television.
The memoir by journalist Kate Legge, (pictured) who is separated from Greg Hywood, former Fairfax CEO and currently Chair of Free TV Australia, tracks four generations of infidelity in her family.
Described as “a deeply personal and universal exploration of pain and betrayal,” the book has received rave reviews from the likes of Annabel Crabb, Trent Dalton, and Geraldine Doogue.
Producer Joanna Werner said, “We are thrilled to be working with Kate Legge on an adaptation of Infidelity and Other Affairs. It’s a beautifully nuanced take on infidelity and relationships and we are excited to be translating it into an equally compelling premium drama.”
Legge is attached as a writer for the adaptation.
