A+E Media Group Finds Partners for Your Neighbour’s Wife Adaptation


A+E Media Group has partnered with Stockholm Syndrome and Endor Productions for a returnable series adaptation of Tony Parsons’ novel Your Neighbour’s Wife.

The psychological thriller centers on Tara Carver, an entrepreneur who co-founded a successful dating app for women who has a happy family of her own. After an impulsive one-night stand on a work trip, her life turns into a nightmare when the man turns out to be a manipulative stalker.

U.K. screenwriters Rebecca Pollock and Kas Graham (The Book of Ruth) are attached to write the adaptation.

Executive producers of the new series are Patrick Vien, Alexandra Finlay and Hannah Dal Pozzo for A+E Media Group; Greg Lipstone, Peter Settman, Melanie DiPietro and Samantha Simon for Stockholm Syndrome; and Carlo Dusi and Jennifer McConnell for Endor.

“A+E Media Group is thrilled to be working with Kas, Rebecca and our wonderful partners at Stockholm Syndrome and Endor to develop a bingeworthy new series based on Tony’s acclaimed IP,” said Finlay, VP of scripted international co-productions at A+E Media Group. “Featuring captivating characters and zeitgeisty themes, the series showcases A+E’s vision of creating powerful and relatable stories with global appeal.”

“We are delighted to have such amazing partners in A+E and Endor who share our vision and ambition for the show,” commented Lipstone, CEO of Stockholm Syndrome. “At Stockholm Syndrome, we pride ourselves on finding great IPs with compelling characters, so from the moment we read the manuscript, we knew Tony Parsons had written a thrilling and entertaining story that needed to be brought to the screen.”

Dusi, managing director of Endor, added, “We could not be more excited to join forces with our friends at Stockholm Syndrome and A+E Networks in bringing Rebecca Pollock and Kas Graham’s compelling adaptation of Tony Parson’s addictive novel to the screen. Your Neighbour’s Wife will seduce and shock viewers around the world with its morally complex protagonists and intoxicating twists and turns, and we cannot wait to make it into memorable television drama for our times.”
