Charlize Theron is producing a TV series named after a 2014 book called A Life in Men: A Novel by Gina Frangello. With Kristen Stewart and Riley Keough playing the two main characters, this series will be shot entirely in Europe. Check out the summary below!


The friendship between Mary and Nix had endured since childhood, a seemingly unbreakable bond, until the mid-1980s, when the two young women embarked on a summer vacation in Greece. It was a trip initiated by Nix, who had just learned that Mary had been diagnosed with a disease that would cut her life short and who was determined that it be the vacation of a lifetime. But by the time their visit to Greece was over, Nix had withdrawn from their friendship, and Mary had no idea why. Three years later, Nix is dead, and Mary returns to Europe to try to understand what went wrong. In the process she meets the first of many men that she will spend time with as she travels throughout the world. Through them she experiences not only a sexual awakening but a spiritual and emotional awakening that allows her to understand how the past and the future are connected and to appreciate the freedom to live life adventurously.


Theron will produce the show with her company Denver and Delilah Productions while Sarah Walker, who wrote for shows like Awkward and Santa Clarita Diet, will write the script. We don’t have a release date just yet, but we’re sure it’ll be a hit just like all the adaptations we’ve been seeing!
