The Vampire Diaries lead actress Nina Dobrev is going to play the lead role in a television series based on Greer Macallister's bestseller novel Woman 99. According to Deadline, the project is developed by Bruna Papandrea's Made Up Stories in partnership with Endeavor Content.
Macallister's book, which was published in March 2019, follows a young woman whose quest is to free her sister from an infamous insane asylum, risking her sanity, safety, and life.
"Greer's gripping novel has so many elements that I love including a courageous heroine, the mighty bond of sisters and the power of perseverance, all set against a heartbreaking backdrop exploring the historical treatment of women cast off from society," Papandrea said in a statement.
Nina, best known for starring in The Vampire Dairies, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Flatliners and XXX: Return of Xander Cage, will also serve as executive producer. "It's so important to tell women's stories written by women with women for women. Unfortunately, history continues to repeat itself, and Woman 99 explores themes of mental illness, societal inequality, and injustice that make this cautionary tale feel hauntingly relevant even centuries after the story takes place," Dobrev said.
