BROKEN by A.E. Rought, a Re-Imagining of Frankenstein, Optioned for a TV Series

Strange Chemistry author A.E. Rought is reporting that her novel Broken has been optioned for an hour-long dramatic television series by ABC Family. As she points out, an option is no guarantee that it will actually be made into a series, but the first step in that direction is the option, and that’s a done deal.

The story of Broken, a reimagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, concerns a young girl named Emma Gentry whose boyfriend, Daniel, is the latest victim in a string of suspicious deaths near a small Michigan town. Emma is naturally depressed, and then she meets town newcomer Alex Franks, who she is strangely drawn to. Even stranger: there are eerie similarities between Alex and Daniel.
