FX Adapting Fairy-Tale Novel ‘The Changeling’ for TV


FX is ready to get its fairy tale on.After a competitive situation with multiple outlets bidding, the cable network is adapting Victor LaValle’s 2017 novel, The Changeling, for the small screen.


The Changeling is described as a fairy tale for grown-ups. Set in a New York no one knew existed, the drama focuses on the death-defying odyssey of Apollo Kagwa and Emma Valentine as they look to find out what happened to the son who was removed from them. On their voyage, they will travel through enchanted isles and haunted woodlands, meet glowing witches, demon giants and racist cops. They will deal with the perils of personal technology and social media, toxic masculinity, the mental health of new mothers and fathers, and find out if surviving a fairy tale is as brutal as simply surviving in Trumplandia.
