Good news this Monday morning: author Sue Grafton will be coming back to life!
The creator of beloved sleuth Kinsey Millhone swore in 1997 that she would never sell her alphabet mysteries to Hollywood and that she’d return from the dead to prevent her heirs from doing so.
But, the Associated Press reports, Grafton’s husband recently sold those rights to A+E Studios, saying that he and Grafton’s children believe that times have changed enough since the author’s famous vow.
“Television has greatly evolved since Sue was writing in Hollywood in the 1980s. From her experience then, she was concerned that her stories and characters would be diminished when they were adapted,” said Steve Humphrey — who will serve as executive producer of the TV show — in a statement.
“But as the power of television has transformed over time, so too has the quality from writing and acting to the production values and viewing experience.”
Grafton passed away in 2017, after she’d completed twenty-five Kinsey Millhone books.
