The hit YA novel, They Both Die At The End will be heading to your tv soon
That’s right, Entertainment One has signed on to develop the New York Times best selling novel, They Both Die At The End, by Adam Silvera, into a television series.
Silvera is set to write adapt his own novel into the script for the series. After the announcement, Silvera Tweeted saying, “I’m adapting #TheyBothDieAtTheEnd for TV as the creator, screenwriter, and executive producer,” confirmed Silvera. “Legit dream!! Long road ahead, but Mateo and Rufus’s story has always been about meaningful journeys—I’m ready to go bring my “Before Sunrise meets Black Mirror” series to life.”
In a string of subsequent Tweets, Silvera confirmed that development of the series with the other members of the creative team has already begun.
The novel was released in 2017 and takes place in a world where you receive a call on the day you are going to die.
On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.
Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—to live a lifetime in a single day.
