James McBride’s “Deacon King Kong” is in the starting blocks of the latest literary adaptations being planned for the small screen. The company Sister has acquired the rights to the book, acclaimed by the famous Oprah Winfrey in her Book Club Selection.

Literary adaptations for the small screen have never worked as well as in recent months. Currently, James McBride‘s “Deacon King Kong” is among the projects in progress, and the rights to the book have just been acquired by the global content company Sister.

Oprah Winfrey’s favorite

“Deacon King Kong”, Oprah Winfrey‘s book club favorite, is set in September 1969 in a Brooklyn community. The story, featuring vibrant characters and subjects dear to the author’s heart, such as love and faith, was bound to hit the small screen. Something familiar to James McBride, who has already seen his novels adapted for TV and cinema (The Good Lord Bird, Miracle at St. Anna).
