FX Networks Developing Drama based on Chelsea Cain's Archie Sheridan Thrillers

Heartsick by Chelsea Cain

Early last year we reported that Chelsea Cain's Archie Sheridan mysteries had been optioned … though it was unclear at the time whether it was for film or television. Today we're learning that FX Networks is putting the project into development as a drama series for the cable network.

Heartsick, the first book in the series — there are four to date — introduces the Portland detective and his pursuit of serial killer Gretchen Lowell. In the end she was the one who caught him, but after torturing him for days she mysteriously let him go and turned herself in. Since then the she has been locked up, leaving Archie damaged but alive in a prison of another kind — addicted to pain pills, unable to return to his old life, powerless to get those ten horrific days or Gretchen off his mind.

When another killer begins snatching teenage girls off the streets, Archie has to pull himself together to head up a new task force, but even then he can’t stop him without getting information from Gretchen — an encounter that may destroy him.

With Susan Ward, a hungry young newspaper reporter, profiling Archie and his team, Archie, the killer, and Gretchen enter into a dark and deadly game.
