Endemol Shine Studios, the scripted division of Endemol Shine North America, has optioned Michelle Miller’s upcoming debut novel The Underwriting to develop into a TV series. The book, set to be published Tuesday by Putnam, centers around a $14 billion IPO for the world’s hottest dating site app.
Described as The Social Network meets The Wolf of Wall Street, The Underwriting is a tale of young wealth and ambition among the millennial generation. In writing the book, Miller draws on her own background in high-finance. She worked at J.P. Morgan’s Private Bank and as a consultant in Palo Alto, New York, and Europe before leaving to write The Underwriting.
Endemol Shine Studios’ EVP Carolyn Bernstein is overseeing development of the project for the studio.
