Great Circle is set for a TV adaptation

Great Circle by award winning author Maggie Shipstead is being adapted for a new television series.

The novel follows the life of a daring female aviator during the mid-20th century and interweaves the story of a Hollywood star who is set to play her.

According to a Deadline report, production company Picturestart has signed on to bring her novel onto the small screen.

Check out our review of her 2021 novel:

“Is all of life a circle? That is a major theme of this sprawling great epic of a novel, ranging for more than a century from 1909, centred on the life of fictional early aviator, Marian Graves.

The story explores the journal she kept while attempting to fly in a huge circle from pole to pole and the fictionalised book based on that journey. There is also the subsequent film, and in particular the life of the actresss playing the main role.”
