Paramount & Anonymous Content to make 'The Windfall' as a TV series

MUMBAI: Paramount TV and Anonymous Content have come together to develop Indian author Diksha Basu’s upcoming debut novel The Windfall as a TV series.

Indian filmmaker Shonali Bose has been assigned the responsibility to write and direct the potential plot. Rosalie Swedlin and Doreen Wilcox Little are the executive producers for Anonymous Content under the company’s first-look deal with Paramount TV.

Scheduled to be published in June by Penguin Random House imprint Crown, The Windfall tells the story of an Indian couple in Delhi who are suddenly catapulted from their humble middle class origins into massive wealth. When they leave their safe and yet claustrophobic environs of their East Delhi home, and move to a mansion in the plush new suburb of Gurgaon, the family discovers what it means to be nouveau riche in modern India as they struggle to fit in.

Paramount TV and Anonymous Content’s previous collaborations include series Berlin Station, now in production on its second season for Epix; 13 Reasons Why, based on Jay Asher’s bestselling YA book, premiering 31 March on Netflix; Maniac, to be directed by Cary Fukunaga starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, also for Netflix; and The Alienist for TNT, based on Caleb Carr’s novel.

Also in the works are Spoonbenders, based on Daryl Gregory’s upcoming novel; a series based on Rebecca Traister’s bestselling book All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation; a series based on 9-year-old journalist Hilde Lysiak’s book series Hilde Cracks the Case; Legbreakers, an English language version of the hit Swedish drama series Torpederna with Irvine Welsh penning the pilot; and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: and Other Lessons from the Crematory, adapted and executive produced by Nurse Jackie co-creator Evan Dunsky, based on Caitlin Doughty’s bestselling memoir.
