Emily Bitto’s The Strays to become 6-part TV Series

The Stella-winning novel, inspired by Heide artists, will be a UK/Australian co-production between See Pictures and Apogee.

Emily Bitto’s 2015 Stella Prize-winning novel The Strays (Affirm Press) is set to be adapted into a six-part TV series, co-produced by Sonia Borella (Go! Long Story Short) for Australian based See Pictures, and Jo Monk (Hampstead, Kodachrome) for UK’s Apogee Pictures.

Inspired by the Heide Circle of artists and bohemians, The Strays explores what happens when a violent act in the past of a subversive group of artists is linked to the death of a young woman in the present. One of those involved must decide whether to expose a now influential member of the establishment, in order to prevent further tragedy.
