The college admissions bribery scandal had “Hollywood adaptation” written all over it when the news broke in March, and now a TV series in the works. Annapurna Television has optioned the rights to Accepted, the book by Melissa Korn and Jen Levitz, for a limited series with DV Devincentis writing.

The book details the recent college admissions scandal that exposed a criminal conspiracy to influence undergraduate admission decisions at several prominent American universities. Stars including Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman have been indicted as part of the bribery scheme.

Sue Naegle, Ali Krug and Patrick Chu will produce on behalf of Annapurna Television.
