Plan B is behind The OA and Moonlight among other hugely successful projects and Sweetbitter is sure to make a splash. The novel, which follows 22-year-old Tess, already has a huge following. Tess works a crazy job in a famous New York restaurant, and Sweetbitter explores the life of food, wine, and drugs into which she is thrust.

Bustle has touted Sweetbitter as the next Big Little Lies, and Danler, who worked as a waitress before landing her book deal, has adapted the screenplay herself! No information about casting has been released yet, but judging by who’s already on board, we expect some big names!
