‘Au Pairs’ for Warner

Barrymore shingle to produce young-adult tome series

Warner Bros. Pictures has bought the film rights to Melissa de la Cruz’s steamy young-adult book series “The Au Pairs,” setting up the first tome to be adapted and produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films.

Alloy Entertainment also will produce.

Three books have been published in the “Au Pair” series, with the fourth due out next spring.

The first, “The Au Pairs,” takes up as three teenage girls learn how the other half lives when they take summer jobs as au pairs for a wealthy family with a home in the Hamptons.

Like Cecily von Ziegesar’s “Gossip Girl” series and Zoe Dean’s “The A-List” series, de la Pena’s series offers plenty of juicy fun and teen sex for the millions of girls who are gravitating to such titles. (“Gossip Girl” is being developed into a TV skein for the CW by Josh Schwartz.)

“Au Pairs” producers are Barrymore and Flower Film partner Nancy Juvonen, along with Alloy prexy Leslie Morgenstein. Alloy’s Bob Levy will exec produce.

Flower Films has a first-look deal with Warners.
