Bosch Producer Developing Novel from Fight Club Author for TV


Fabrik Entertainment has optioned the novel Invisible Monsters from Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk and will develop it as a series, marking the first time one of the author’s books has been adapted for television.

The novel Invisible Monsters is centered on a fashion model who has everything—the perfect boyfriend, a thriving career, a loyal best friend—until a sudden freeway accident leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech. She goes from the beautiful center of attention to being perceived as an invisible monster—enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a woman.

Fabrik is a Red Arrow Studios company that produces the Amazon series Bosch and the upcoming Interrogation for CBS All Access. Writer Jennifer Yale is penning the adaptation. Fabrik Entertainment CEO Henrik Bastin and President Melissa Aouate are executive producing. Fabrik Development VP Paul Hilborn, who brought the project to the company, is shepherding the development process.

Bastin and Aouate said: “We are delighted to bring to life a book that has moved readers and built a devoted global following over the past two decades. This thrilling novel offers a rare combination of rich character work and shocking revelations that only Palahniuk can deliver, and in Jennifer Yale’s talented hands we are confident this will be an engaging, cinematic experience that will be sure to grab attention and make headlines.”
