Sydney-based distributor Escapade Media has teamed up with Sallyanne Ryan Archer’s Maiden and Rodrigo Vidal Dawson, co-founder and EP at local prodco Blackfisch Sydney to secure the option for novelist Frances Whiting’s book The Best Kind Of Beautiful.

The trio will adapt the story for TV. The book, which was published last year, follows Florence Saint Claire, a former child star who is a reluctant member of a musical family with a legendary father, an impossible mother, a sister who can’t keep still and a brother who walks to his own beat.
