Just days before it hits shelves, Diane Cook’s upcoming debut novel, The New Wildernessabout a mother’s battle to save her daughter in a world ravaged by climate change—is getting one hell of a publicity boost.

Deadline today reported that Warner Bros. Television has acquired the rights to develop the book as a TV series, with none other than Matt Reeves (director of two of my three favorite ape movies: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes) set to executive produce.

To the best of my knowledge the are no apes, of either regular or enhanced cognitive ability, in The New Wilderness. Despite this unfortunate handicap, the book has already been longlisted for the Booker Prize and received a clutch of rapturous early reviews.
