Best Seller To Become Apple Series

William Landay’s 2012 blockbuster novel Defending Jacob, a wrenching depiction of what happens to a family when a lawyer’s teenage son is accused of killing a classmate, begins its transition to the screen this March, when Apple begins an eight-episode series starring Chris Evans (of Captain America fame).

According to Deadline, other A-listers involved are Mark Bomback (Planet of the Apes trilogy), who will write the series, and Oscar-nominated director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), who will executive produce and direct. “I’ve seen the first few scripts and they’re fantastic,” Landay ’90 said in a blog post announcing the long-awaited project.
