The story is adapted for a new generation: “We’ve set in today’s environment and time,” said producer Michael Boughen, “The communications process has changed since John wrote the novels – the internet, phones, the way kids communicate with each other.”
Boughen hopes he’s making something that will appeal to parents as well as kids – what the networks refer to as a “co-viewing” proposition. “There’s 20 years of history there,” he added. “People who were reading them as teenagers can now hopefully revisit them with their own kids.”
