The TV rights to the upcoming Stephen King and Owen King novel Sleeping Beauties were recently acquired by Anonymous Content, per a report by Deadline.

Sleeping Beauties will be released on September 26, 2017 and is set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison. Stephen King, of course, is well known for his writing with 54 novels and counting, as well as over 200 short stories and six non-fiction books. Many of those have been brought to the big screen. Hulu is airing an amalgam of Stephen King’s work in series Castle Rock.

Official Amazon Description of Sleeping Beauties

“In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place… The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?”

The executive producers for Sleeping Beauties are Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta.
