SPT & Luke Scrase’s Golden Gate land Lizzy Barber’s ‘Out Of Her Depth’

Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has optioned Lizzy Barber’s psychological thriller Out Of Her Depth, with Luke Scrase’s Golden Gate Studios attached to develop the show for TV.

Golden Gate, which is under a first-look deal with SPT, will work on the show with writer Matilda Curtis, who is currently in development with All3Media’s Two Brothers Pictures on Dinosaur. She is also working on a drama series for Carnival, and Sunshine Girl, a comedy film in development with Stigma Films.

Scrase is attached to executive produce Out Of Her Depth alongside Barber, while Brendan Fitzgerald, SVP of international co-productions for SPT International Production, will oversee the project for the studio.

The deal was brokered by Emily Hayward-Whitlock at The Artists Partnership. Pan Macmillan acquired publishing rights via Luigi Bonomi at Luigi Bonomi Associates in a two-book deal.

The thriller is set in the heat of a Tuscan summer and follows a headstrong woman who finds her allegiances tested amongst a cosmopolitan crowd of friends for whom money is no object.
