Amazon Studios has acquired the TV rights to drama “I Hope You Get This Message” from Glasstown Entertainment, which is based on the novel by Farah Naz Rishi. The book tells the tale of three teens – Cate, Jesse, and Adeem – who find themselves on a collision course with fate in the aftermath of a message from an alien race granting humans seven remaining days to live. News stations across the country are reporting mysterious messages that Earth has been receiving from a planet – Alma – claiming to be its creator. If they’re being interpreted correctly, in seven days Alma will hit the kill switch on their “colony” Earth.
“Farah is an astonishingly talented debut author who brings wit and authenticity to these characters,” Glasstown president of publishing Lexa Hillyer said. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Amazon Studios to introduce her voice—and the inspiring story of Cate, Jesse and Adeem—to the small screen.”
