Boat Rocker & Lena Headey Partner for The Girl and the Goddess


Boat Rocker Studios has partnered with Lena Headey and her production company, Peephole Productions, to produce a series adaptation of The Girl and the Goddess.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Nikita Gill, the series will follow a woman named Paro as she begins university in London. When she starts to have flashbacks to her childhood in India and its partition, Hindu deities appear to guide her.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Lena and Peephole Productions to bring Nikita’s beautiful story to the screen,” said Katie O’Connell Marsh, vice-chair of Boat Rocker Studios. “We know that global audiences will be as captivated by the powerful and original storytelling as we are.”

“I’ve long been in love with Nikita’s words,” added Headey. “The Girl and the Goddess is a tale that just begs to be seen and celebrated.”

“I’m delighted to be working with Lena, Peephole and Boat Rocker to bring my deeply personal tale The Girl and the Goddess to life,” said Gill.

O’Connell Marsh and Nick Nantell serve as executive producers for Boat Rocker, along with Lena Headey and Tina Thor for Peephole Productions. Gill will also executive produce.
