Major British Production Company Acquires Film Rights for Bernardine Evaristo’s Book.

Ever since winning the Book Prize, it’s been hard keeping up with Bernardine Evaristo’s achievements. The latest addition to these heartwarming strings of achievements is the acquisition of the screen rights to Girl, Woman, Other by Potboiler Television.

The British production company is run by BAFTA Award-winning producer Andrea Calderwood and Gail Egan. You might know them from their work on the Academy Award-winning movie The Constant Gardener and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Another high profile adaptation coming out of their stable is Adichie’s Americanah, which is about to go into production for HBO Max.
