Brain Power Studio Options The Fallen Angels Book Club


Brain Power Studio has optioned the screen adaptation rights to The Fallen Angels Book Club series, written by mystery author R. Franklin James.

The six-book series follows ex-felon paralegal Hollis Morgan, who ended up serving time in prison for her husband’s embezzlement. After serving her sentence, she joins The Fallen Angels Book Club, where she finds support and acceptance—until a member turns up murdered. Using her paralegal skills to investigate, Hollis soon finds herself on the wrong side of the police investigation, jeopardizing her chance at a judicial pardon.

Rhonda Baraka (Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta, Bobbi Kristina) will write and executive produce The Fallen Angels Book Club, along with Beth Stevenson and Nancy Yeaman at Brain Power Studio.

Beth Stevenson, founder and executive producer at Brain Power Studio, said: “The main character of this book series is an intelligent and intriguing woman whose criminal past has given her the unforeseen gift of solving crimes. We are happy to be working with Rhonda Baraka to bring Rae James’ complex and diverse lead to the screen.”
