Scaachi Koul’s ODWABDANOTWM Optioned For TV

Scaachi Koul’s witty and razor-sharp collection of essays, One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter has been optioned for TV! First Generation Films has acquired the rights to adapt the collection into a scripted half-hour comedy series, with Scaachi herself tapped to write and executive produce the series.

“Scaachi’s singular voice is at once fearlessly bold yet incredibly vulnerable and she’s exactly the kind of artist whose stories we want to be telling. She paints such a vivid and hilarious portrait of what it means to be an outsider that we immediately connected with her story and think audiences will too,” says First Generation Film founder Christina Piovesan.

ODWABDANOTWM is an Amazon Best Book, a national bestseller, and has been featured on multiple spring and summer Must-Read lists, including Amazon’s. It has received acclaim from Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, The New York Post, The Washington Post, Bustle,
Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and more.

The book was published in March by Doubleday Canada, in May by Picador in the US, and
recently by Penguin Random House India, and has since sold over 16,000 copies! It is
in its second print run in Canada.
