Sister, the production co-founded by Elisabeth Murdoch, Stacey Snider and Jane Featherstone, has optioned Jennifer Weiner’s New York Times bestseller Mrs. Everything and will adapt the book for TV.
Here’s the logline: growing up in 1950s Detroit, Jo and Bethie Kaufman are sisters who, as their lives unfold against the backdrop of Vietnam, the civil rights movement, and women’s liberation, find themselves struggling to honor their unique truths versus pleasing the world.
