If you've read Catherine Ryan Howard's novel '56 Days', you'll already be aware that it's a story ripe for TV adaptation.

The novel is set in Dublin during the pandemic - which is also when Howard wrote it, publishing it in 2021 - and tells the story of two young professionals, Ciara and Oliver, who become romantically involved but who both hold dark secrets of their own.

The murder-mystery-with-a-twist takes place, as the title suggests, over the course of 56 Days and is described as a "psychological thriller that tells the story of an intense, erotic romance that turns deadly. It follows two young professionals, striking out on their own in a new city, who are entangled quickly in a charged relationship that leads to a powerful intimacy that is soon cracked open by their secrets … and to murder."

Amazon will develop the series, which will be produced by James Wan's Atomic Monster production company. It will be adapted by Lisa Zwerling (ER, When We Rise) and Karyn Usher (Bones, Prison Break), but there is no word yet on whether the setting will remain in Dublin.

In any case, we look forward to seeing it on the small screen!
