“Cuckoo Song” To Be Adapted As A Mini-Series

Catalyst Global Media has optioned Francis Hardinge’s award-winning bestselling young adult novel “Cuckoo Song” with plans to adapt it into a four-part TV series.

Set in 1920s England, the story follows a young girl whose world is turned upside down when she finds herself eerily altered. She unearths a magical folklore world and embarks on a quest to repair a broken family haunted by the events of WWI.

The title was the first young adult book to win the British Fantasy Awards’ top prize and was shortlisted for both the Carnegie Medal and the James Herbert Award.
