Terry McMillan’s best-selling 1992 novel “Waiting to Exhale” will be adapted for the small screen, the author announced Thursday.
A number of McMillan’s novels have been made into movies, including “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” and “Disappearing Acts,” which became a made-for-TV movie. The author shared the news about the “Waiting to Exhale” series in a string of posts on Twitter.
“I lucked out,” McMillan tweeted.
“Waiting to Exhale” tells the story of four women ― Savannah, Bernadine, Gloria and Robin ― who lean on their friendship to support one another through career and relationship issues. McMillan revisited those characters in a 2010 sequel novel, “Getting to Happy.”
McMillan’s announcement did not include any further details about the series. In a later tweet, she thanked her followers for their supportive messages and said the series will “take a minute.”
“Not my world,” she added. “Will keep you posted.”
