Tomorrow Studios Adapting Novel Jackie, Janet & Lee for TV


ADVERTISEMENT

Marty Adelstein’s Tomorrow Studios (Snowpiercer, Good Behavior) is adapting the New York Times best-selling biography Jackie, Janet & Lee as a scripted drama series.

The book, from J. Randy Taraborrelli (After Camelot, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe), focuses on the famous sisters Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill and their ferociously ambitious mother, Janet Auchincloss. The story is based on hundreds of new interviews with friends and family of the Bouviers, including their half-brother, as well as letters and journals.

Taraborrelli and Keri Selig (After Camelot, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, The Stepford Wives) of Intuition Productions will produce along with Tomorrow Studios’ Adelstein and Becky Clements.

Adelstein commented: “Randy immediately captivated readers with his account of Janet Auchincloss and her daughters, Jackie and Lee, in his book. Their story of glitz, glamour, intrigue, money and power is one television audiences are sure to love, especially given that they are three of the most iconic women of the 20th century.”
