NBC is moving forward with the film adaptation of the Dutch drama series Adam and Eve – two and a half years after the project was submitted for development.
The network has transmitted a project that comes from The village creator Mike Daniels and producers David Ganolari and Rob Golenberg and Alon Aranya.
The adaptation – now known as Untitled Mike Daniels Pilot – is produced by Universal Television in collaboration with 6107 Productions, David Janollari Entertainment, Silver Lining Entertainment, Willy Waltz International.
The series is about the epic love and life of two complete strangers, whose many clashes begin to challenge chance and make both believe in fate. Unusually, it combines serialized romantic comedy with the wildly diverse and often unexpected human stories of everyone who finds themselves six degrees away from Adam and Eve.
The Dutch series ran from 2011 to 2016 and was considered one of the most popular television dramas in the country in recent years. A version of the adaptation was also previously developed at Fox in 2017.
Daniels, who was a producer-consultant Bluff City Act and worked on series including Brave and Sons of anarchy, will write and perform. Janolars, whose latest credits include Bluff City Act and North, Texas, executive producer along with Rob Golenberg and Alon Aranya, as well as Robert Alberdingk Thiem and Norbert ter Hall, who wrote and directed the original series. Chris Markie oversees the producer.
