Novelist Erin Young’s 2022 crime thriller debut ‘The Fields’ is getting a television adaption. Made Up Stories, Jennifer Todd Pictures, and Endeavor Content are handling the production with Kate Brooke serving as the writer and showrunner. Young will be an executive producer with Brooke and Todd.

“From the moment we read The Fields, we were hooked,” Papandrea and Todd told Deadline. “Erin has the incredible ability to weave ripped-from-the-headlines themes like Big Agriculture and political corruption with a heart-pounding, unpredictable murder mystery – and all without sacrificing an exceptionally grounded world. That is precisely why we were all thrilled when Kate Brooke, who masterfully crafts rich characters we want to root for, signed on to adapt. We could not be more excited to be working with this powerhouse team in bringing Erin’s chilling book to screen.”

Erin Young expressed her excitement on Twitter saying, “Holy moly. Can’t bloody believe it but absolutely over the moon that THE FIELDS has been taken on for TV by this serious dream team – Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies) Jennifer Todd (Come From Away) & Kate Brooke (Discovery of Witches)…”

GoodReads describes the novel’s synopsis as follows,

“A breakneck procedural that is beautifully written and masterfully crafted, Erin Young’s The Fields is a dynamite debut—crime fiction at its very finest. Some things don’t stay buried. It starts with a body—a young woman found dead in an Iowa cornfield, on one of the few family farms still managing to compete with the giants of Big Agriculture.

When Sergeant Riley Fisher, newly promoted to head of investigations for the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office, arrives on the scene, an already horrific crime becomes personal when she discovers the victim was a childhood friend, connected to a dark past she thought she’d left behind. The investigation grows complicated as more victims are found. Drawn deeper in, Riley soon discovers implications far beyond her Midwest town.”

‘The Fields’ was released in April 2022 and is the debut crime novel from Erin Young, a pseudonym for Robyn Young, who has written several historical fiction books.
