The CW to Create a Little Women Dystopian TV Show

By Maryann Yin 

Little Women Book (GalleyCat)The CW has given the greenlight for a television series based on Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. The Huffington Post reports that the production team does not plan to stay faithful to the book.

According to Deadline, this TV show will be “a hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation.” On the show, sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy join forces “to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined – all while trying not to kill each other in the process.”

Alexis Jolly has been brought on as a writer. No casting announcements have been made as of yet. Click here to download a free digital copy of Alcott’s novel. (via Seventeen)
