According to a report by Variety, Fox Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television are developing a script-to-series project for the book. Mitch himself will serve as the show’s writer as well as executive producer together with Keith Eisner.
The upcoming series will explore the novel’s key characters’ lives on Earth and the afterlife. The multiple storylines of each character are interwoven and explore themes like redemption, love, hope, and human connection.
In 2004, the book was adapted into a made-for-TV movie starring Jon Voight.
