This is no surprise to me that MILA 2.0 has been optioned. It’s going to make a phenomenal TV show. I know, I know… the book doesn’t come out until next year, but I was lucky enough to be able to read an advanced copy. If you haven’t heard of this book, put it on your must read lists and preorder your copy!
According to DEADLINE…
Producing partners Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers have teamed with David DiGilo for MILA 2.0, a sci-fi thriller set up at ABC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on Debra Driza’s upcoming book Mila 2.0, the drama is described as a thriller about a young woman who discovers that she’s a Mobile Intel Life-like Android, or MILA, an experiment in artificial intelligence created by the U.S. government and her scientist mother who kidnapped her when she was found to have human emotions.
DiGilio will pen the script and executive produce alongside Rhimes and Beers, the producers behind ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal.
Driza’s young-adult novel, her first, will be published in in March by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins.
Shonda Rhimes is attached too! WOW! I am telling you that this is going to be amazing!
