Devon Life - - Upfront -

A Devon au­thor’s psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller looks set to be­come a new tele­vi­sion se­ries.

Jane Corry’s novel My Hus­band’s Wife has been op­tioned by two lead­ing pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies to be adapted for the small screen.

Mum-of-three Jane was sworn to se­crecy for nearly two years un­til the deal with Big Talk and Usa-based Mr Mudd was com­pleted.

She said: “I had known about two years ago that there was in­ter­est. It takes a long time for th­ese things to be started. I had to keep very quiet.”

Big Talk was be­hind last year’s smash hit movie Baby Driver and also pro­duced a range of pop­u­lar TV shows Mum, Cold Feet and Rev.

My Hus­band’s Wife is pub­lished by Pen­guin.
