Victoria Asare-Archer Boards The House Hunt Adaptation


Eleventh Hour Films has tapped screenwriter Victoria Asare-Archer (Missing You, Stay Close, Doctor Who: The Runaway) to adapt C.M. Ewan’s The House Hunt for the screen.

In The House Hunt, young couple Lucy and Sam put their recently renovated dream house up for sale to clear their debts, but when Lucy must handle a showing on her own with a dangerous man, events spiral out of control.

Asare-Archer is currently lead writing and executive producing the Harlan Coben adaptation Missing You for Netflix. She previously wrote two episodes of Stay Close for Red Production Company and Netflix, as well as the Emmy-nominated virtual reality game Doctor Who: The Runaway.

Paula Cuddy, Eve Gutierrez and Jill Green from Eleventh Hour Films are executive producing The House Hunt adaptation, alongside Asare-Archer and Ewan.

“All my years of Rightmove stalking have finally paid off!” Asare-Archer said. “It’s a dream to be able to combine my love of property porn and tense domestic thrillers in one gripping series. Chris has written the most engrossing book about one young couple’s property nightmare. It’s an honor to have been asked to turn a best-selling book into a must-watch TV series.”

Paula Cuddy, creative director at Eleventh Hour Films, commented, “Victoria is the dream writer to adapt and deliver for screen the story of Lucy and Sam whose world is turned upside down when they put their house up for sale. Brilliant characters, jaw-dropping twists, turns and reveals. It’ll be a rollercoaster ride for the audience; we’re so excited to be on board with Victoria at the wheel.”
