‘King of the Screwups’ in the Works as Series at Alloy

Young-adult specialist Alloy Entertainment is developing a TV series based on K.L. Going’s “King of the Screwups.”

Alloy’s president Leslie Morgenstein and Cheryl Dolins are on board to produce the project.

Going’s novel, published in 2010, centers on a popular teenage troublemaker who is kicked out of his house and sent to live with his Uncle Pete, a DJ by day and lead singer for a ’70s glam rock cover band by night.

Alloy produced the first two “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” movies and announced in April it was developing a third movie, based on the novels from best-selling author Ann Brashares. Liz Garcia (“Dawson’s Creek”) will adapt the novel and Ken Kwapis, who directed the original film, will return to direct.

Alloy’s TV business, acquired by Warner Bros. TV in 2012,  includes packaging and producing young-adult fare such as “Gossip Girl,” “Pretty Little Liars,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals” and “The 100.”
