Yesterday The Institute was released and on the same day Spyglass Media Group’s TV division announced that they will develop the book as a limited series, with David E. Kelley and Jack Bender (the team behind Mr. Mercedes) attached. Kelley will pen the adaptation and Bender will direct. Both will executive produce. No release date has been revealed.
“I’m delighted to be working with Jack and David, the creative team behind Mr. Mercedes. We think alike, and I believe The Institute is going to be a great success.”
