Warner Bros. Lights Shining City


Warner Bros. has bought big screen rights to Shining City, an upcoming novel about a milquetoast dad who unwittingly inherits a prostitution ring.

Donald De Line will produce the project based on Seth Greenland’s novel, scheduled to debut from Bloomsbury next year.

De Line said the manuscript, which Sylvie Rabineau of the RWSH literary agency sent out to producers Sept. 28, was a quick, smart read.

“I flew right through it,” he said, praising it for treating working women with respect and dignity.
