Propagate Content is developing a scripted series based on Galt Niederhoffer’s novel Poison.
The outfit, led by Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens, has optioned the book, published by St. Martin’s Press, about a seemingly perfect marriage that unravels when Cass Connor begins to suspect her husband is trying to kill her. “Galt is a gifted creative voice and we are excited to collaborate on bringing her novel to video,” said Silverman. “The story couldn’t be more timely as humanity tries to thrive in this toxic age.”
The psychological thriller is set in an affluent Portland, Maine, neighborhood. Niederhoffer is the author of four novels, including Taxonomy of Barnacles and The Romantics, and has produced more than 20 films.
