YA Horror ‘DREAMFALL’ to Be Adapted For TV

April 25, 2017

DreamFall

DiGA Studios has acquired the rights to YA writer Amy Plum’s novel DREAMFALL to be adapted as a TV series. The novel will be published by HarperTeen on May 2, 2017. It’s the first book of her newest YA horror duology. The sequel “Neverwake” will be released in May 2018. The story revolves around an experiment to cure chronic insomnia that goes terribly wrong. The teenage subjects of the experiments fall into a joint coma, and, like an urban myth, if you die in your dream, you die in real life.

Here’s the description for Dreamfall:

Seven teenagers who suffer from debilitating insomnia agree to take part in an experimental new procedure to cure it because they think it can’t get any worse. But they couldn’t be more wrong. When the lab equipment malfunctions, the patients are plunged into a terrifying dreamworld where their worst nightmares have come to life– and they have no memory of how they got there. Haunted by monsters from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, these seven strangers will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up. 

DiGA Studios is well known for MTV’s Teen Wolf and Scream, is currently on production on the feature film Eat Brains Love, which is also based on a novel.

DiSanto, CEO of DiGa Studios said:

“Amy Plum’s DREAMFALL is a riveting, nightmarish thriller with great characters and a fantastic premise that immediately captured our imagination and drew us in. The book’s vision and voice is a perfect fit for DIGA’s creative sensibility, and we are thrilled to bring this to the screen.”

Plum is well known for her “Die For Me” series, which was an international bestseller. She’s also known for the “After the End” series.
