I am thrilled to finally be able to announce that CIRCE is heading to television with an 8 episode season on HBO Max! Here’s a Deadline article with more information, including the brilliant writers, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa (the team who is bringing us Mulan), and the producers, Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content. As an author, it is an honor to have my work in the hands of such passionate, experienced, and thoughtful people. I can’t wait to see what they do with Circe’s story, and most of all I love that they are keeping the Witch of Aiaia firmly at the center of her own epic journey–just where she belongs. I promise more news as it comes, including casting!
And for those of you who remember when I announced that the rights for The Song of Achilles had been bought, an update: those rights have lapsed, but I promise I haven’t forgotten about Achilles and Patroclus. Along with the big and small screens, it has long been the wish of my heart to see The Song of Achilles on the stage. If and when I have news, I will post.
Most of all: thanks to all of you who wrote so kindly with your congratulations, and for all your support and faith in my work. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I have the best readers in the world. Thank you for taking Circe’s and Patroclus’ stories so much to heart.
