“House” executive producer Katie Jacobs has optioned the rights to Sheila Weller’s New York Times bestseller “Girls Like Us” says Variety.
The non-fiction book chronicles the coming of age in the late 1960s of three very different but soon to be famous female singers – Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. Each came from very different backgrounds but went on to successful recording careers.
Between them they created such songs as “You’re So Vain,” “Nobody Does It Better,” “Help Me,” “It’s Too Late,” and “You’ve Got a Friend”. Each proved highly influential singers to many musicians of the 70’s through til today.
Jacobs will produce and possibly direct the project as a theatrical feature.
