Carolyn Huynh’s The Fortunes of Jaded Women is headed to the small screen, Deadline reports.

Heyday Television and Universal Television are developing a series based on Huynh’s novel, published in 2022 by Atria, which tells the story of Mai Nguyen, a woman in Orange County, California, who is estranged from her two sisters and concerned about the love lives of her three adult daughters. A critic for Kirkus praised the book as “a funny, sharp, and insightful look at family bonds and the effects of tradition on modern life.”

Huynh will write the adaptation with Bekah Brunstetter (American Gods, This Is Us). Alan Yang (Parks and Recreation, Master of None) will produce.

“I’m thrilled and ‘fortunate’ to be working on the adaptation of my debut, The Fortunes of Jaded Women, alongside Heyday Television, Universal International Studios, the illustrious Bekah Brunstetter, with Alan Yang’s thoughtful producing,” Huynh told Deadline. “I can’t think of a better home to bring these Vietnamese women to life and pay respectful homage to Little Saigon and Orange County.”

She also shared news of the adaptation on Instagram, writing, “Grateful doesn’t even cut it. This one’s for the Viet girlies! Thrilled to work with such empathetic, kind, and legendary(!) folks to bring these women to life: Alan, Bekah, Cabrina, David, Debbie, and Grace.”
