The Bea Catcher Chronicles to Be Adapted As Series By ABC Family & Atlas
ABC Family is set to develop Sketchy, a drama series based on the young adult novels The Bea Catcher Chronicles by Olivia Samms’. Samms will write and co-executive produce the TV adaptation with Atlas Entertainment’s Alex Gartner as executive producer, and Jake Kurily to produce.
Bea’s life has been a mess ever since she got kicked out of private school and sent to rehab. Now clean, Bea is starting over at Packard High School, in a city shaken from two assaults on young women. The latest victim, Willa Pressman-the one who survived-doesn’t remember a thing. But Bea has a disturbing new “skill”: she can see-and then draw-images from other people’s minds. And when she looks at Willa, Bea is shocked by what she sketches. Bea might be the only one who knows Willa’s secrets-and who can take down the killer before he strikes again.
