Variety is reporting that HBO has ordered an adaptation of the 2007 thriller The Follower by Jason Starr for a series. (It isn't clear from the article if "series" means mini-series or weekly series.) Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Less than Zero) is writing the screenplay.

Though the book is a suspense novel about one man stalking one woman, the Variety article suggests the HBO adaptation will be a dark social satire chronicling the dating lives of a group of twentysomething New Yorkers as seen through the eyes of a stalker.

Book synopsis: With each meaningless date and disappointing new boyfriend, Katie Porter is becoming more and more disillusioned. No matter how wide a net she casts she can’t seem to find a guy who really understands her. But someone thinks she’s special—very special. And he’s watching her ...

Peter sees Katie at the gym. He sees her at the coffee bar she stops at on the way to work. In fact, he sees her almost everywhere, as he quietly trails her. But most of all, he sees her in his plans for the future. He’s got the proposal worked out, he’s even got the ring and their happy home already bought. After all, he’s had enough time to plan things to perfection—he grew up in the same small town. Surely, after all these years, he can’t let anything stand in his way …
