Drama based on 56 Days Gets Series Order at Amazon Prime

Prime Video has given a series order to Obsession, a drama based on Catherine Ryan Howard’s international bestselling novel 56 Days. It hails from James Wan’s Atomic Monster as well as Amazon MGM Studios, which earlier today landed its most ever Golden Globe nominations, 16, ten of them for television.

Lisa Zwerling (The Rook, ER) and Karyn Usher (The Rook, Prison Break) are writers and executive producers of the series, a mix of a crime story and an erotic, psychological thriller. It follows Oliver and Ciara, who, after meeting randomly in a supermarket, fall for each other fast, and dangerously hard. Fifty-six days later, homicide investigators arrive at Oliver’s apartment to find an unidentified body—brutally murdered and intentionally decomposed. Did he kill her? Did she kill him? The series intercuts between an intense single day in the present investigation and the twisted trajectory of the young lovers’ affair in the past.
