PARRISH, THE (Amazon, New!) - Jessica Mecklenburg is spearheading a small screen take on Liv Constantine's bestselling debut novel, which "sees a plain young woman striving to insert herself into high society life by usurping the Queen Bee's fairytale life only to realize she may have gotten herself in way over her head."

Something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place." Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta are also on board to executive produce for Sugar23 and Anonymous Content. (Deadline.com)
