Kim Izzo’s debut novel The Jane Austen Marriage Manual, published in Australia by Hachette, has been picked up by David Cormican (Stranded).

Tonya Lee Williams (The Young and the Restless) will co-produce the big screen adaptation and Up Up and Away will develop and co-produce with Don Carmody Productions.

Kate Shaw is the heroine of Izzo’s romantic comedy. She lives a glamorous life working as an acting beauty editor for a fashion magazine. Now, due to cutbacks, Kate is told her services are no longer required. Her boyfriend has run off with her money, she has no job and is about to turn 40. To make matters worse all those around her are consumed with their swelling bellies and the gender of imminent offspring. Kate takes solace in Jane Austen.
