Liz Tigelaar is adapting Lucy Foley’s 2020 mystery novel, “The Guest List” as a limited series for Hulu. Tigelaar is the showrunner behind hit shows including Little Fires Everywhere and Tiny Beautiful Things.
The TV iteration, like Foley’s 2020 book, will be set on a remote island off a rugged coast, where guests attend an elaborate celebrity wedding. “But with a storm brewing, the picture-perfect affair darkens as the guests and their shared histories dangerously collide — and then the lights go out. And a body is found,” reads the project’s official logline. “As old secrets are brought to the surface, and the mysteries swirl — the question remains, who among these people deserved to die? And who had something to kill for?”
According to THR, Tigelaar will create, write and run the eight-to-10-episode series, should it move forward. Her Best Day Ever Productions producing partner Stacey Silverman will serve as an executive producer on the ABC Signature project alongside Foley.
