Juno Dawson’s paranormal YA thriller, Hollow Pike, is coming to TV! Deadline has reported that Lime Pictures, the studio behind Netflix’s Free Rein, will be turning the novel into a live-action series, with Skins and Youngers writer Georgia Lester attached as head writer.

Lis thinks she’s being paranoid – after all, who would want to murder her? She doesn’t believe in the local legends of witchcraft. She doesn’t believe that anything bad will really happen to her.

But you never know do, do you? Not until you’re alone in the woods, after dark – and a twig snaps…
