“Big Love” creators Will Scheffer and Mark V. Olsen are set to pen “The Tortilla Curtain,” a TV series adaptation of T.C. Boyle’s novel for MGM Television. The plan is to shop it as a premium series and no outlet is attached yet.
Published in 1995, the darkly comedic immigration story follows a liberal white couple living in an upscale development in California, and an undocumented Mexican couple living in the ravine below.
Their lives become intertwined when the white man hits the Mexican man with his car and then flees the scene. Scheffer and Olsen will serve as showrunners while Alex Hertzberg and Sam Sokolow are executive producing.
