Lauren Beukes’ ‘The Shining Girls’ to be adapted as a series for Apple TV+

Elisabeth Moss is set to star and co-produce.

If you haven’t read Lauren Beukes’ 2013 horror/thriller novel The Shining Girls yet, then you’re missing out. For those of us who have, though, it looks like we’ve finally run out of reason to avoid buying an Apple TV+ subscription.

In a report yesterday by Denise Petski of Deadline.com, it was revealed that Apple has officially ordered a series based on the book. Elisabeth Moss will star and act as co-executive producer along with Silka Louisa, who will adapt the novel for television and serve showrunner.

The Shining Girls

In the book, a Depression-era serial killer finds a way to travel through time. The ability also compels him to murder women who “shine” with life and potential. In 1989, one of his victims manages to survive and begins hunting him.

Although Broken Monsters is still my favorite Beukes’ novel (and one of my favorite books of all time), The Shining Girls is a very close second. Add in the fact that the series stars Elisabeth Moss, and that $4.99 per month is as good as gone from my wallet once we get a premiere date.
