Charlaine Harris’s ‘The Harper Connelly Books’ Will Be A TV Series

CBS is developing a new TV series based on the Harper Connelly series of books by Charlaine Harris. Like the first novel in the series, the show will be called Grave Sight.

Harris had this to say about the news: “Any of you reading Variety today saw the happy news that the Harper Connelly books are a prospective series for CBS. We’ll know for sure some time around January. Kam Miller, a writer with a great track record, is the project head, and I’m lucky enough to have the amazing company Scott Free on the team, too. Keep your fingers crossed for the success of this project.”

She’s referring to executive producers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, who are also working with Naren Shankar (CSI), David Zucker, and writer Kam Miller (Law and Order: SVU).

The mystery novels follow Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver as they travel around the country helping find missing persons and solving murder cases. Kind of like Sookie Stackhouse, Harper has a special gift. Since being struck by lightning as a teenager, she has the ability to sense dead bodies and see how they died. Tolliver assists her in their consulting business, and the two stepsiblings have a close, but complicated relationship. The overarching mystery across all four novels is their search for Harper’s sister, who disappeared on her way home from school and has never been found.
