Will Packer Media and Kinetic Content have secured the film and television rights to the best-selling novel Seven Days in June by Tia Williams.
Billed as a seductive romance about star-crossed lovers, the novel was published this year by Grand Central Publishing. The adaptation is the first project to emerge from the scripted division at Red Arrow Studios-owned Kinetic Content.
“Every so often I get to engage in a project that I am absolutely sure will be a game changer,” said Packer. “This is that project. Seven Days in June is provocative, timely and wildly entertaining. The sexiness, the intensity, the unashamed Blackness makes this an ideal project for us at Team Packer. Tia is so incredibly talented and Kinetic Content are such perfect partners, this is the right project for the right team at the right time!”
Melissa Myers, president and partner at Kinetic Content, added, “We were blown away by Tia’s masterful storytelling on Seven Days in June and were passionate about winning the commission, which was sought after by so many in our industry. We are excited about working with Tia and the team at Will Packer to bring this beautiful and emotional love story to the screen.”
Williams will be among the exec producers. She is also the author of Accidental Diva, the It Chicks series and The Perfect Find, which is being adapted into a Netflix film with Gabrielle Union.
