CBS To Adapt Charlaine Harris’ Harper Connelly Novels
Hoping lightning will strike twice, CBS is adapting the Harper Connelly Mysteries by Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse thrillers on which HBO’s True Blood is based.
Called Grave Sight, after the first Harper Connelly novel, the series is produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, along with Naren Shankar (CSI), David Zucker and writer Kam Miller (Law & Order: SVU), Variety reports.
Debuting in 2005, the Harper Connelly Mysteries centers on a young woman who, as a teenager, was struck by lightning, leaving her with the ability to sense dead people and see how they passed away. Harper and her stepbrother Tolliver decide to make the best of her situation, and charge customers in need of her talents. To date, four books have been released in the series.
