A television adaptation of Charles Forsman's I Am Not Okay With This has been picked up by Netflix, according to Deadline. The streaming service has ordered an eight-episode first season overseen by director Jonathan Entwistle and producer Shawn Levy. Christy Hall co-created and will write the adaptation.
"Sydney seems like a normal 15-year-old freshman. She hangs out underneath the bleachers, listens to music in her friend’s car, and gets into arguments with her annoying little brother ? but she also has a few secrets she’s only shared in her diary," reads Fantagraphics' solicitation for the 2017 collection. "Like how she’s in love with her best friend Dina, the bizarreness of her father's death, and those painful telekinetic powers that keep popping up at the most inopportune times."
Forsman's The End of the F***king World was previously adapted for a live-action Netflix/Channel 4 series, and a second season is currently in production.
