Alisa Valdes’ best-selling work is getting the Starz treatment…
Starz has put in development the female-driven comedy series Dirty Girls Social Club, based on the best-selling novel by the 47-year-old Cuban American author, journalist and film producer.
The Dirty Girls Social Club is described as a dynamic and sexy half-hour series about six diverse professional women living in New York City who’ve known each other since college. Ten years later, and through professional and personal successes, failures and heartaches, the one thing they can always count on is each other.
“The Dirty Girls Social Club is a wonderful story about friendship with complex, nuanced characters,” said Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik. “We are proud to develop a series that celebrates cultural diversity, produced by a diverse group of women.”
Ligiah Villalobos will serve as showrunner. She’ll executive produce with Anne Thomopoulos and veteran network executive Lucia Cottone.
Valdes is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of more than a dozen novels, an award-winning print and broadcast journalist and former staff writer for both the Los Angeles Times and the Boston Globe.
