Silver Milk Productions has optioned Dorothy Koomson's Tell Me Your Secret (Headline).
Actor Nicholas Pinnock, co-founder of Silver Milk, acquired film and TV rights from Rebecca Watson at Valeria Hoskins Associates acting on behalf of Antony Harwood Ltd.
Tell Me Your Secret is the story of Pieta Rawlings, who is kidnapped by a man called The Blindfolder, who tells her that she will live if she keeps her eyes closed for 48 hours. A decade later, Pieta has moved on without telling anyone what happened, but The Blindfolder is back hunting down his past victims, and she realises she may finally have to reveal her deepest secret to stay alive.
Pinnock previously starred in the ITV adaptation of Koomson's The Ice Cream Girls.
Koomson said: “I have kept in touch with Nicholas ever since he brought the character of Dr Evan to life in The Ice Cream Girls adaptation and I am excited about the prospect of working with him and Silver Milk on Tell Me Your Secret.”
