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.
