Corus Entertainment, Netflix greenlight adaptation of British novel series Geek Girl

Canadian broadcast group Corus Entertainment and Netflix have greenlit an adaptation of British teen novel series Geek Girl from author Holly Smale.

The 10-part project comes from Waterside Studios, the Jeff Norton-led IP and production venture formed under Corus last year, and children’s content studio Nelvana, also owned by Corus.

Filming on the Canada/UK coproduction is scheduled to begin later this year. In Canada, it will air on one of Corus’s TV networks. Globally, the series will stream on Netflix.

The adaptation is produced by UK-based RubyRock Pictures, led by Zoë Rocha, and Toronto-based production company Aircraft Entertainment, which was last year acquired by Corus.

The Geek Girl novel series follows an awkward, neurodiverse teenager whose life is upended when she becomes a model and embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she balances high school and high fashion. Published initially in 2013 by HarperCollins, the series has been translated into more than 30 languages to date.
