Patti Smith Turning Just Kids Memoir Into Showtime Series

Patti Smith released her National Book Award-winning memoir Just Kids, about her friendship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, in 2010. Smith was reported to be working on a screenplay adaptation of the book back in 2011, and now, that seems to have paid off: Showtime has ordered a limited series adaptation of Just Kids, as The Hollywood Reporter reportsIt will be co-written by Smith, who will co-produce with John Logan (creator of fellow Showtime show “Penny Dreadful”).

In a statement, Smith elaborated on the forthcoming show. “A limited series on Showtime will allow us to explore the characters more deeply, enabling us to develop stories beyond the book and allow a measure of unorthodox presentation,” she said. “The medium of a television limited series offers narrative freedom and a chance to expand upon the themes of the book.” An episode count has not been determined.

Smith also recently announced a sequel to Just Kids, titled M Train, to be released October 6 via Knopf.
