Red Arrow Studios International has optioned the rights to veteran journalist and former Editor in Chief of USA Today Joanne Lipman’s bestselling book “That’s What She Said: What Men Need to Know (and Women Need to Tell Them) about Working Together” to develop into a fictionalised television series.
The show, a co-production between Anonymous Content, Charlie Lyons and Red Arrow Studios International, will be executive produced by Paul Green and Paula Munoz Vega for Anonymous Content alongside Charlie Lyons, and Carlo Dusi and Bo Stehmeier for Red Arrow Studios International.
“That’s What She Said” tackles the issues facing workplaces across the globe, “providing a roadmap for navigating the world in the post-#MeToo era.” The book combines anecdotes from Lipman’s own rise to the top of a male-dominated industry with data and research to offer real-world solutions for combating unconscious bias, sexual harassment, “bropropriation,” “mansplaining,” the gender wage gap. The producers are currently in discussions with writers to sign on to develop the project further.
“That’s What She Said” is published by HarperCollins.
Carlo Dusi, EVP Commercial Strategy, Scripted, Red Arrow Studios International, said: “Joanne’s work is timely and insightful, offering a nuanced exploration of gender politics in the workplace and how we can collectively progress in the wake of #MeToo. We’re excited to be working with Charlie and Anonymous Content to develop what promises to be a smart and engaging piece of television.”
Charlie Lyons added: “Joanne is a dazzling storyteller with the worldview and wisdom to tackle this provocative project. I’m honored to work with her, Anonymous and Red Arrow on this exciting television event.”
