SyFy plans Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly series show

The Syfy Channel has picked up the rights to Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly Mysteries for a new series in development titled Grave Sight.

Harris’s 4 book series, launched in 2005.  In the Syfy adaptation, Harper Connelly teams up with her protective stepbrother, Tolliver Lang, to help find a missing teenage girl, only to uncover a network of lies and murders throughout a small town in the Ozarks.

Kam Miller (Law and Order: SVU) is writing the pilot, which is being developed as a prospective drama series with Universal Cable Productions. Previously, CBS was developing a TV show based on the novels. Word that Syfy might have picked up the books leaked onto some True Blood and Harris fan forums earlier this month.

This is great news for TV! I'm encouraged by the signs of intelligent life in TV production companies to go behind a HUGE name in fiction to embrace some real creativity.
