Amazon has greenlit a limited series called “The Stolen Kids of Sarah Lawrence” based on a story for New York magazine written by Ezra Marcus and James D. Walsh. The article told the story of a group of young women and men attending the prestigious liberal arts college of Sarah Lawrence who found themselves in the orbit of a charming but manipulative father of one of their classmates, Larry Ray. Last month, Ray was indicted by federal prosecutors for sex trafficking, extortion, conspiracy and other charges.
Reed Morano (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) will direct. Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Television co-presidents Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold will executive produce, as will Scoop Wasserstein on behalf of New York magazine and Vox Media Studios.
