There's Going to Be a TV Show About Ashley Madison
With how much attention the Ashley Madison hack has drawn, we can’t say we’re surprised that there’s now a TV series in the works inspired by the infidelity website.
The scripted series is in the early stages of development with Steven Marrs and Courtney Hazlett of OutEast Entertainment set to produce, THR reports.
The show’s premise is only loosely based on the website, so there will be noticeable deviations from reality.
One of these changes, for example, is that a woman founded the show’s fictional website. She’s described as “a good mother who launches the business to help support her family.” Ashley Madison, on the other hand, was founded by Canadian Internet entrepreneur Noel Biderman.
Hazlett explained that this decision was made because focusing on a male founder seemed “stereotypical.”
