CARRIE SOTO IS BACK Heads to Picturestart

Fri Mar 31, 2023

In a highly competitive situation, Picturestart has acquired the rights to Carrie Soto Is Back, the 2022 novel by Daisy Jones & The Six author Taylor Jenkins Reid. The novel was published in August by Ballantine Books and debuted atop the New York Times bestseller list. It won the 2022 Goodreads Choice Award for Historical Fiction. Reid will be exec producer alongside Circle of Confusion and Picturestart.

Carrie Soto Is Back is Reid’s latest novel and caps off a series of four interconnected books, all featuring iconoclastic famous women, and each is in development or already adapted for screens. Erik Feig’s Picturestart used its own funds to get a piece of that author momentum. The series adaptation Daisy Jones & The Six topped Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 List in the U.S., and its fictional band’s debut album Aurora reached No. 1 on iTunes in the U.S.
