Harlan Coben to Develop 14 Titles for Netflix

Including several of his own books.

Netflix's deal with thriller author Harlan Coben for the production of the Safe series starring Michael C.  Hall. Coben enjoyed working with Netflix so much he has decided to work with them to adapt no less that fourteen titles into series and movies. This is a major win for Netflix and Coben will be an executive producer on all projects.

Harlan Coben has sold more than 75 million copies around the world and his work has been translated into more than forty languages. His new book Runaway about a young lost girl is set to be released in March of next year and is part of the list of productions to be filmed by Netflix.

Entertainment Weekly announced, Vice President of Netflix Erik Barmack said:

 

Harlan’s page-turning crime novels are beloved by readers around the world. We are excited to continue our partnership with him and develop his suspenseful thrillers into global Netflix originals.

For all the thriller, mystery and crime fans it should be cool to see how Netflix will captivate their audience. With heavy competition from HBO, Starz alongside a wide range of other networks, I hope these fourteen productions will gain wide acclaim.
