90210's Rebecca Sinclair Developing Lost Girls Adaptation And A Drama For The CW
Former 90210 showrunner Rebecca Sinclair has two new drama projects in the works, at two different networks. She’s developing a drama for the CW about a pop star turned faith healer against her will, as well as one based on the 2010 travel memoir The Lost Girls.
The CW drama, which is as yet untitled, focuses on a young, self-absorbed pop star who comes from a very religious family background. The black sheep of her family who cares only about her career, she finds herself in an unexpected position when a fan claims that she was healed by the star’s touch. It’s an interesting concept and definitely at the right network; it sounds like the kind of thing CW viewers could get into.
The second project over at CBS Studios is based on the book by Jennifer Baggett, Holly Corbett, and Amanda Pressner. The Lost Girls is about a trio of friends who drop their careers in Manhattan and take off to “find themselves” in travels around the globe, where they bond with each other and learn about themselves. It sounds like something of an Eat, Pray, Love for the younger crowd. Deadline mentions a fourth woman in the book who disappears and leaves the other three to search for her. It sounds to me like this is going to be some fictionalization added to the original story, as there’s no mention of the search for a lost friend in the book’s original description. This is the second go at a TV adaptation for the book, which was being developed at ABC back in 2010, and it sounds like they’re spicing it up a bit with a mystery component.
