We all have those foundational books. Those books that make us realize what stories can do, and how they can affect our lives. For me, Isabel Allende’s The House of the Spirits was one of the first books to do that. That’s why I’m extremely excited about an upcoming The House of the Spirits television series on Hulu!
According to Deadline, Allende will be on board as an executive producer for the show. It’s still in the early stages of development, so no writer or director has been named, nor do we have a release date.
The book was originally published in 1982, and has since been printed in over 35 languages and sold 70 million copies. There was a movie in 1993 that was *ahem* particularly white-washed, so over at the Riot we’re hoping for the Latino cast this book deserves.
