Pair dig ‘Holes’ for TV

“Holes,” the bestselling young adult novel that was turned into a hit 2003 feature and more recently a stage play, is now being developed for the small screen. The Hatchery and Walden Media, which plan to take the project to the broadcast networks in the next week, are reworking the Newberry Award-winning book into a half-hour single-camera comedy. The book, penned by Louis Sachar, revolves around the young residents of a juvenile detention camp in Texas and in particular one boy who lands there after being wrongly accused of theft. “Holes” is a reference to the large chunks of earth the kids are forced to dig by the camp’s warden.
