Contrary to the sentiment of more than a few critical tweets, the show will not be an adaptation of the case that season 1 focused on—the unsolved murder of Hae Min Lee. Instead, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it will be “based on the experience of making the hugely successful podcast.”
Fox 21 Television Studios has optioned the rights to the adaptation, and Fox president Bert Salke told THR that the project was something special, with a “once in twenty-five years creative team” working on it.
Both Sarah Koenig, Serial‘s host, and Ira Glass, the host of This American Life, are onboard. They were apparently pleased with Lord and Miller’s idea for the show before it was even presented to Fox 21.
Lord and Miller have a large slate of highly anticipated projects in their future, perhaps none more so than the Star Wars film about young Han Solo that they are directing.
