Abbi Jacobson will adapt Isle McElroy’s People Collide as a series, Deadline reports.

McElroy’s novel, published last September by HarperVia, follows Eli, who leaves the apartment he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, only to discover that he is inhabiting her body. A critic for Kirkus called the book “a creative, well-written exploration of marriage, gender, and desire.”

Jacobson is developing the series with the production companies UCP and Killer Films. The actor and comedian, best known as the co-creator of the series Broad City and A League of Their Own, will be the adaptation’s showrunner and writer.

UCP is developing other literary adaptations, including series based on Elin Hilderbrand’s The Five-Star Weekend and Jamie Ford’s The Many Daughters of Afong Moy, while Killer Films is working on a television adaptation of Sarah Schulman’s Let the Record Show.

“I’ve been a massive fan of Abbi Jacobson’s work for years, and I’m thrilled by her vision for the project,” McElroy told Deadline. “I can’t think of a better writer to capture People Collide’s mix of intimacy, drama, and humor. Killer Films has made some of my favorite movies of all time. I deeply admire their commitment to creating unique, unforgettable work. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm UCP has brought to People Collide. It’s an honor to be working together.”
