Iggy Azalea’s Azalea Street Productions optioned Temple Mathews’ upcoming novel Bad Girl Gone, a tale of ghostly detection. The pop star acquired the novel as part of her first-look deal with Universal Cable Productions and Wilshire Studios, where she will develop reality TV series and high-end scripted fare designed to reach a millennial audience.
In Bad Girl Gone, sixteen year-old Echo Stone awakens in a cold sweat in a dark room, having no idea where she is or how she got there. But she soon finds out she’s in Middle House, an orphanage filled with mysteriously troubled kids. And they’re not just troubled; they’re also dead. Desperate to somehow get her life back and reconnect with her still-alive boyfriend, Echo embarks on a quest to solve her own murder. As the list of suspects grows, she learns she wasn’t quite the girl she thought she was.
Bad Girl Gone releases August 8.
