Sarah is part of the producing team on the TV adaptation of Emma Jane Unsworth’s best-selling novel ADULTS with Playground Entertainment and Wiip.
“Emma Jane Unsworth creates a world complex enough that in the
echoes of our laughter are also relatability, wistfulness, even hope” – The Guardian
ADULTS follows Jenny, a woman in her thirties who has completely lost touch with herself. She’s just been dumped, she’s failing at work, losing her friends and now her body has let her down too. Instead of any meaningful relationship, columnist Jenny dedicates all of her time to maintaining the picture-perfect digital persona taking her online anxiety to a whole new level. Jenny is forced to put down her phone and re-evaluate the complicated relationships with the mother, her friends, and most importantly, herself. Deliciously candid and gloriously heartfelt, Adults is the story of one woman learning how to fall back in love with her life. It’s a sharp, witty and achingly relatable portrait of a modern woman coming to the realisation that she doesn’t have to go at it alone.
BIFA-WINNER EMMA JANE UNSWORTH WILL WRITE THE SERIES.
