Someone’s Making “The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up” Into A TV Show
Decluttering expert Marie Kondo is a New York Times-minted best-selling author, one of TIME’s most influential people and the woman who convinced you that talking to your socks was a good idea. And now, because everything under the sun is available to option as a TV pilot or a movie, her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, has gotten the book-to-pilot treatment.
Deadline reports that NBC is developing a scripted comedy series from Erica Oyama, the creator of the hysterical “Bachelor” spoof, “Burning Love.” It will apparently center on “a young woman in a moment of crisis who attempts to get her messy life in order,” which doesn’t need a TV pilot, because we live it every day, am I right ladies?!?!?!
It’s not clear to me how this show will use a gentle self-help book as a guiding light to create any sort of narrative tension or plot, but I realize now that I would gladly watch people meditatively fold their T-shirts, so this could be fantastic.
