Amazon to Adapt LGBTQ Hit ‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ for TV

Berlanti Productions is still going strong, even without any future seasons of Arrow lined up after next year’s Season 8 conclusion.

Deadline reports that Amazon Studios and Berlanti Productions will be adapting Casey McQuiston’s Red White & Royal Blue, one of 2019’s most anticipated LGBTQ novels about an unexpected power couple romance.

Red White & Royal Blue follows America’s favorite son, White House royal-equivalent, Alex Claremont-Diaz, as he falls in love with former across the pond enemy, Prince Henry. The surprise romance causes all sorts of diplomatic complications between the two nations, and Alex’s relationship problems will be taken to another level.

The highly anticipated novel appears to be in good hands. Juilliard Playwriting graduate Ted Malawer will pen the adaptation, and Berlanti Productions has developed LGBTQ content with favorable audience approval, especially after its recent success with introducing LGBTQ superhero icon, Batwoman, to television (She was the only memorable part of that Arrowverse TV crossover).

While there is no release date for the rom-com adaptation, the novel will be published by Macmillan next month.

Jimmy Fallon Is Releasing Another Children’s Book

Comedian and late night host Jimmy Fallon has won over the hearts of many with his comedy, but he’s also won over young hearts with his children’s books about fatherhood. And now, a brand new one is coming.

People magazine reported that Fallon’s new book, This Is Baby, will be released this Fall. It is a picture book about babies naming different parts of the body.

Fallon’s two previous children’s books, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA and Everything Is Mama, were met with positive reviews. Fallon wrote these books based on his experiences with becoming a father, which he talked about before being the best experience of his life.

 

“It’s the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You realize what’s important in life. Every single day you realize there’s a new cute thing they’re doing or saying.”

 

This Is Baby will be available October 8th.
