I’m proud today to announce my horror novel SUFFER THE CHILDREN has been optioned by Perro Azul for potential adaptation for Netflix, Vix, or another venue.
Perro Azul is a Mexican production house with a solid track record developing Spanish-language TV series and movies. Their work ranges from zombie series to cop dramas to political dark comedies.
Published in 2014 by Gallery Books, SUFFER THE CHILDREN is about a disease that kills the world’s children only to bring them back requiring blood to stay alive a little while longer. The kids are vampires, but the true monsters may be the parents who will do anything to keep their children alive. As the blood supply wanes, their only source may be each other…
This book has been optioned before but failed the funding test due to its grimdark material. I’m hoping this time will be different and this story will finally be brought to life on a screen. Fingers crossed!
I just finished Suffer the Children and all I could think was how this would make an amazing show on HBO, Netflix or the like!
