Witherspoon also dropped the news on her Instagram page.
The two women will develop the project through their respective production companies (Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Washington’s Simpson Street) with ABC Signature Studios. The show will be written by “Casual” writer Liz Tigelaar, who will also executive produce and serve as showrunner. Ng will be involved as well and act as a producer.
The book was also the September pick for Witherspoon’s book club. Hello Sunshine snatched up the rights soon after it was released last year.
