Mark Lawrence's IMPOSSIBLE TIMES trilogy optioned for television

Production companies Synchronicity Films and Wild Sheep have optioned Mark Lawrence's Impossible Times trilogy for television.

Writer-producer Holly Phillips is developing the project for the small screen. Phillips previously steered Get Even to television with the BBC and Netflix, and has previously worked on Millie Inbetween, Robin Hood, Nearly Famous and Sugar Rush. She was also the creator of The Athena.

Impossible Times consists of the novels One Word Kill, Limited Wish and Dispel Illusion (all published in 2019) and tells the story of a 15-year-old boy and his tabletop RPG-playing friends when a new girl joins the group and brings a whole heap of trouble with her.

The TV version is being developed under the name One Word Kill, which seems to have been decided on as a more striking and memorable title.

This is only an option at this stage, and no streamer or TV network is currently attached.
