Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly Mysteries to be Adapted for Television by CBS

Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris
More information about the book

Mystery writer Charlaine Harris already has one television series based on her characters on the air (HBO's True Blood); now CBS may be adding another.

Variety is reporting that the broadcast network is interested in Harris's Harper Connelly series, the first book of which, Grave Sight, will also serve as the series title. Brothers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott will co-executive produce.

Set in the Deep South, Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living -- but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her stepbrother Tolliver as her manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent -- even if the dead can wait forever.
