CBS is developing Now You See Her, a legal drama based on the book by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. Blue Bloods executive producer Siobhan Byrne O’Connor is penning the adaptation and executive producing with Patterson, Bill Haber, Bill Robinson and Leopoldo Gout. CBS TV Studios, where James Patterson Entertainment has a first-look deal, is the studio.
Now You See Her centers on a successful attorney at a boutique New York City law firm who is hiding her true identity and past as a murderer when one case threatens to expose her and upend her new life and career.
Patterson executive produces CBS’ summer drama series Zoo based on his novel, which has been renewed for a second season to air in 2016. His popular Women’s Murder Club book series is in early development at USA Network as a TV series, 1st To Die (working title), written/executive produced by Tony Krantz and executive produced by Patterson.
Last year, another CBS/CBS Studios drama project based on a Patterson novel, For Justice, went to pilot at the network.
