Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon is to be adapted into a TV drama by Red Planet, the makers of BBC One's "Death In Paradise".

The story centres on 84-year-old Florence who has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago?

Cannon’s best-selling debut The Trouble with Goats and Sheep was published in 2017. Her second novel Three Things About Elsie was released on 11th January.

Cannon said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Red Planet on bringing Three Things About Elsie to the screen. It's a dream come true to see your words transformed into a script, and I can't think of a better partnership to guide Florence and Elsie on their new journey.”

Belinda Campbell, joint managing director of Red Planet, said: “Three Things About Elsie is an incredibly moving story about what it is to grow older, friendship and the importance of living in the moment. We were all enthralled by the story and jumped at the chance to adapt it for television.”
