WarnerMedia takes two from Maniac creator

US entertainment giant WarnerMedia has ordered two series from Patrick Somerville, the creator and co-showrunner of Netflix drama Maniac, for its upcoming streaming service.

Patrick Somerville

Made for Love is a 10×30′ straight-to-series adaptation of Alissa Nutting’s tragicomic novel of the same name. A story of divorce and revenge, the novel and series follow a 30-something woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to an unstable tech billionaire.

Produced by Paramount Pictures, the series will be directed by SJ Clarkson, who will exec produce alongside Liza Chasin and Deak Bakopoulos. Somerville is the showrunner.

Meanwhile, Station Eleven is a 10-episode limited series drama based on Emily St John Mandel’s international bestselling novel of the same name. The post-apocalyptic story focuses on the survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to rebuild the world.

Also produced by Paramount and showrun by Somerville, Station Eleven will be directed and exec produced by Hiro Murai. Somerville will also exec produce with Scott Steindorff, Scott Delman and Dylan Russell. Nate Matteson will serve as co-exec producer.

Somerville most recently created, wrote and served as co-showrunner and exec producer on critically acclaimed Netflix series Maniac. His other credits include writer and producer for HBO drama The Leftovers.
