‘Primates of Park Avenue’ to get TV treatment

Washington: Wednesday Martin’s memoir ‘Primates of Park Avenue’ is being scripted for a series, by Lionsgate TV.

The studio is teaming with the author to develop a half-hour comedy, based on her 2016 New York Times best-seller from Simon & Schuster, reported Hollywood Reporter.

The potential TV series, like the book, will follow anthropologist Martin, who, when she first arrives on New York City’s Upper East Side, is utterly out of place with the glamorous, sharp-elbowed mommies around her. As a last resort to fit in, she begins “studying” the new tribe’s mating and migration patterns, child-rearing practices, and magical purifying rituals.

Martin will co-write the pilot and produce the project alongside Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens, Stacy Cramer, and Heather Lieberman.
