Bestselling author Harlan Coben ’84 has signed a multi-year exclusive deal with Netflix to develop 14 of his works —including his upcoming novel Run Away—into series for the streaming service, The Slanted reports.
“Harlan’s page-turning crime novels are beloved by readers around the world,” Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix, told the publication. “We are excited to continue our partnership with him and develop his suspenseful thrillers into global Netflix originals.”
Coben, a perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author of thirty novels, has sold over 75 million books. Neflix currently airs two crime drama series based on his writing: Safe, starring Michael C. Hall, which premiered earlier this year, and the 2015 French series No Second Chance.
“I’m thrilled to continue our relationship,” Coben said.
