TV: The Happiness Machine

"In a competitive situation," IM Global Television has optioned Katie Williams's (The Space Between Trees, Absent) upcoming sci-fi novel The Happiness Machine (Riverhead Books) to develop as a TV series, Deadline reported. Screenwriter Patrick Tobin (Cake) will write the adaptation.

"Katie Williams' book is a quietly intense and emotional page-turner which explores, with even-handed aplomb, the complexities of our search for contentment and our twisted relationship with the technologies that serve us and that we serve," said IM Global Television president Mark Stern. "In Patrick Tobin, we've found the perfect writer to adapt this provocative material for television."
