I'm thrilled to share that my debut book, SPYING IN HIGH HEELS,
is in development for a television series on the USA Network!! It's currently
one of five new shows being developed for their fall 2007/2008 season.
Here's a blurb on the show:
"A new cast of characters are being welcomed to USA Network's ambitious
development slate for the 2007/2008 season. Bolstering the "Characters Welcome"
brand, a slate of five new pilot scripts was announced by Jeff Wachtel, USA's
executive vice president, original programming.
"One of the projects includes a show entitled Spying in High Heels, based
on the characters from Gemma Halliday's 2006 release of the same name.
"The show concept follows shoe designer Maddie Springer, who in an effort to
track down her missing boyfriend, realizes that her knack for fashion also
serves another purpose: It makes her a great detective. Maddie's uniquely female
perspective helps her pick up clues, using her designer's eye to discern tell
tale shapes, colors and patterns, among other things. Along with her best friend
Dana, an out-of-work actress, Maddie decides to open a detective agency
operating out of her stepfather's hair salon. Producer is Larry Shuman and
Executive Producer/Writer is Sara Endsley. "
While I'm extremely excited, I know that not all shows that go into development
will make it on the air. At this stage, the network is putting out feelers to
see which of their new shows are creating the biggest buzz. If you want to see
Maddie and Ramirez on the small screen, there are a couple of things that you
can do to help "buzz" the show.
1. Blog about it! Send a bulletin to your MySpace friends! Spread the word!
2. Write to the USA Network and tell them you heard about Spying In High
Heels and can't wait to watch it. Or, if you've read the book and liked it,
tell them that, too! (If you read the book and didn't like it, please don't tell
