Over a decade after working together on the ABC espionage series Alias, creator JJ Abrams and star Jennifer Garner are reuniting for a very different television project.
Abrams and Garner are teaming up to adapt the bestselling memoir My Glory Was I Had Such Friends written by Amy Silverstein. The planned miniseries is in development for Apple's upcoming streaming service, Apple TV, with the project being given a straight-to-series order.
Published in 2017, My Glory Was I Had Such Friends recounts Silverstein's experiences as a group of women supported her as she awaited a second heart transplant to save her life. Silverstein herself will serve as an executive producer along with Abrams, who will produce the upcoming miniseries through his production company Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television.
The miniseries will also reunite Garner with Karen Croner, who will serve as the adaptation's writer and executive producer. The two had previously collaborated on last year's The Tribes of Palos Verdes, starring Garner and written by Croner.
While Abrams is in the midst of production on Star Wars: Episode IX, he has certainly stayed busy with other projects. He produced this year's World War II horror film Overlord while overseeing other productions through Bad Robot. The upcoming adaptation marks his second association with Apple TV after developing an unnamed sci-fi drama with them earlier this year.
