Pulse, Friel meet Perfect Girlfriend

Anna Friel in detective drama Marcella

Vice-backed UK prodco Pulse Films has secured the exclusive rights to adapt Karen Hamilton’s thriller novel The Perfect Girlfriend into a series starring Anna Friel (Marcella, Deep Water).

The story follows Juliette as she tries to win back her ex-boyfriend by retraining as a flight attendant at the same airline where he works.

The series will be executive produced by Thomas Benski and Nicola Larder alongside Friel, whose production company, Wonder Well Productions, has come onboard as coproducer.

Nicola Larder, executive producer of drama at Pulse Films, said: “I am incredibly proud to be joining forces with Anna once again to create what will be another iconic female TV character. I love working with Anna. We vibe off each other incredibly well. We’re going to ensure Karen’s creation of Juliette leaps on to the screen as a true 21st century statement about not taking bad behaviour lying down! We, together with Anna, will build a ground-breaking ‘traumedy.’”
