A TV series based on author E Lynn Harris' critically-acclaimed novel series Invisible Life is in development at HBO.
Published in 1990s, the trilogy centres on a young, gay and black author who fashions a deeply moving and compelling coming-of-age story out of the then-highly controversial issues of bisexuality and AIDS.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, playwright Harrison David Rivers is adapting the novels for the small screen, and he will executive produce the project alongside Proteus Spann and Tracey Edmonds.
The first book in the trilogy, Invisible Life, was published in 1991 and is considered one of the classic novels in gay literature. It was followed by the sequels, 1995's Just As I Am and 1997's And This Too Shall Pass.
