You may or may not remember a while back when I alluded to the fact that maybe FRENEMIES would be turned into a TV movie...with Disney. Well, I didn't want to get my hopes up because as most people in Hollywood know, books get optioned all the time...and then those poor little books just sit collecting dust, waiting for someone to notice them until the option expires. But not so with FRENEMIES. The big news is that we're going into production, baby. Yes, you heard that right:
FRENEMIES IS OFFICIALLY GOING TO BE TURNED INTO A DISNEY CHANNEL TV-MOVIE!
See? I told you it was huge. I actually found out a few days ago, and I did post about it on Twitter and Facebook. But now I have even more news about it. Ready? Okay!
The plan is to make three "shorts"--basically mini-movies (maybe a half-hour each) that all have the same theme (frenemies) but feature different characters. Halley and Avalon will be in one of the shorts and there will be a bunch of other characters I've never heard of in the other ones. I'm sad to say there may not be a Tyler or Wade or even Sofee or Brianna--but that's just based on the limited information I've received so far. I do know that there's an amazing director attached, as well as three phenomenal writers adapting the books for the small screen, and casting will begin soon. Filming is scheduled to start in April in Toronto.
Of course, in my wildest dreams this will spin off into a regular TV series and I'll be even bigger than the breasts of Charlie Sheen's goddesses--and maybe, just maybe, the whole FRENEMIES series (including books 3 and 4) will finally be available in the U.S. and you can buy the books and read them (although probably not for 99 cents...sorry). Wow. I smoked too much Charlie Sheen again. I'd better stop.
Anyway! There you have it. Now I'm going to look into how I can turn myself into a pharmaceutical-grade drug and get some porn stars to move in with me. Because (DUH!)...I am SO. FINALLY. WINNING!
