The adaptation will be penned by actor and New York Times bestselling author Catherine Steadman (Downton Abbey, The Rook, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), marking her her screenwriting debut.

Ryder is the bestselling author of six psychological thrillers including The Ex Wife, Lie to Me and The Girl You Gave Away.

Herbert L Kloiber, former MD of Germany’s Tele München Group, launched Night Train Media as a developer, coproducer, financing partner and distribution specialist for in-house and third-party projects in February.

Kloiber, who is the company’s CEO, said: “International broadcasters and streamers want high-end, contemporary scripted content that immediately stands out in a crowded marketplace.

“Together with Giuliano and our outstanding creative partners at BlackBox Multimedia, we are poised to enter production on The Ex-Wife – a compelling story based on great IP from extraordinary A-list talent, with global audience demand.”

Giuliano Papadia, CEO of BlackBox Multimedia, added: “Catherine’s genuine talent in creating riveting stories, and her unique perspective on the process as both actor and writer, will make her on-screen adaptation of Jess Ryder’s bestselling novel what thriller fans have been waiting for.”
