Is there an Ashley Madison TV series coming soon?
AshleyMadison.com is probably more famous than Facebook nowadays.While, it's not really good news for all of the people who use the website to have an affair, it has been good news for TV executives and writers interested in banking off the controversial website. According to a report by THR, OutEast Entertainment is currently working on an Ashley Madison TV series. The show will be produced by Steven Marrs and Courtney Hzlett and it is currently titled Thank You Ashley Madison. The TV series centers around a woman who creates the business in order to support her family.
"There are a lot of TV shows doing a great job of presenting marriage storylines in new ways, but what were positing here is, what if there is a third lane to run in and what if you were honest about it?" Hazlett asks, adding that the hack will likely be explored in some form. "What if you didnt need a hack to have this conversation? Maybe this is where your life just is, and no shows on television are offering that."Marblemedia's co-CEO Matt Hornburg said the following about the series: "We are in the early stages of developing a scripted series inspired by the site which, given the events from the past week, make the themes explored more timely." Recently, after its customer records were leaked by hackers, a $576 million class-action lawsuit was filed against the company. Hollywood loves controversy.
