The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev is set to star in Series adaptation of Greer Macallister novel “Woman 99.” Dobrev will also executive produce the series, with Bruna Papandrea also executive producing under her Made Up Stories banner.
“Woman 99” follows a young woman whose quest to free her sister from an infamous insane asylum risks her sanity, her safety, and her life. The novel was published by Sourcebooks Landmark in March 2019.
Made Up Stories’ Steve Hutensky and Casey Haver will also serve as executive producers with Janice Park serving as producer. Macallister will serve as a consulting producer. Endeavor Content will produce. No writer or network is currently attached.
“Bringing ‘Woman 99’ to life with Bruna, Casey, Janice and Endeavor Content has been a dream come true,” Dobrev said. “It’s so important to tell women’s stories written by women with women for women. Unfortunately history continues to repeat itself, and Woman 99 explores themes of mental illness, societal inequality, and injustice that make this cautionary tale feel hauntingly relevant even centuries after the story takes place,.”
Dobrev is best known for her starring roles on “The Vampire Diaries” and “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” She most recently starred in the CBS comedy series “Fam.” Her film credits include “Flatliners,” “XXX: Return of Xander Cage,” “Run This Town,” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
“Woman 99” is Macallister’s third novel. Her debut novel “The Magician’s Lie” has been optioned for film by Jessica Chastain, Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler.
