The Podcast LIMETOWN is Being Adapted by Facebook with Jessica Biel
Limetown is a mystery thriller podcast and Facebook wants to adapt it into a series. That’s right, Facebook has given a 10-episode order to the podcast adaptation and Jessica Biel will star as Lia Haddock. Lia is “a journalist for American Public Radio who seeks to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of more than 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee.”
It’s a really interesting podcast and I hope it translates well to the screen. Limetown creators Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie are writing the adaptation and will executive produce. Biel will also executive produce alongside Michelle Purple from Biel’s Iron Ocean Productions. Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg will also executive produce under Midnight Radio, and they will serve as showrunners. Adrienne Erickson will serve as producer.
If you’re a longtime fan of the 2015 podcast, you’ll also be excited to learn that the long-awaited second season is finally being released. You just have to wait until October 31, 2018. That’s right, it’s being released on Halloween! Also, on November 13, Limetown: The Prequel to the #1 Podcast will be released.
