We’ve got good news for those of you who ticked off literally any of those options: Netflix just ordered a new series based on Tiny Pretty Things, and it’s slated to arrive next year. Get your popcorn ready!
In case you haven’t yet read the book: Tiny Pretty Things, by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton, is a drama-filled portrait of a group of young dancers studying at a prestigious ballet school. While the novel sets the story in Manhattan, it looks like the Netflix show will move the action to Chicago. And the cast features a bevy of gifted dancers, including Daniela Norman (aka Demeter in the upcoming Cats film) and our friend Barton Cowperthwaite.
More info to come as we hear it, obviously!
