New Canadian Drama in Works (based on a book)

The CW and CBS TV Studios are planning a TV Show based on The Painted Girls by Canadian author Cathy Marie Buchanan. "1878 Paris. Following their father’s sudden death, the van Goethem sisters find their lives upended.Marie throws herself into dance and is soon modelling in the studio of Edgar Degas, where her image will forever be immortalized as Little Dancer Aged 14. Meanwhile, Antoinette, derailed by her love for the dangerous Emile Abadie, must choose between honest labour and the more profitable avenues open to a young woman of the Parisian demimonde." If you haven't read her first novel, The Day the Falls Stood Still, don't wait any longer to discover this much talked about Canadian author.
