Gabrielle Union Adds ‘Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls’ to #BookToTV Roster

Actress and producer Gabrielle Union will be giving Anissa Gray’s debut novel The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls the TV treatment.

Entertainment news outlet Deadline reported this week that the novel has a first-look production deal with Sony Pictures Television and Gabrielle’s production company I’ll Have Another, a play off her 2017 memoir title We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True.

A first-look deal is a contractual agreement between a well-known actor/director/producer/writer and their production company and another production company, network, or studio that will have first rights to consider the project by financially supporting the project during development.

“Thank you @gabunion for wanting to bring the women of Care and Feeding to the screen,” Anissa wrote on her Instagram. “They could not have a better champion.”

Erika L. Johnson will be the main writer on the series and serve as executive producer. Her résumé includes book-to-TV show Queen Sugar based on the novel by Natalie Baszile.

I’ll Have Another has also acquired other bookish projects including The Idea of You by Robinne Lee and The Perfect Find by Tia Williams, which Deadline reported in June will be a Netflix film.
