Middlesex: The Series

Though considered by many to be one of the best novels of the last half-century, Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex was seen as too sprawling and difficult for a film adaptation. Now, HBO is prepping a more relaxed, one-hour drama series based on the book, which will presumably allow a more relaxed unfurling of Eugenides’ magnum opus, as well as the certainty of new scenes and characters extrapolated from the source. The adventures of Callie Stephanides, a hermaphrodite coming to terms with her family history and sexual identity in a Detroit suburb, should make for compelling viewing in the right hands. Those hands? American playwright and Yale literature professor Donald Margulies, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for his play Dinner With Friends. Rita Wilson will serve as Executive Producer.
