Emily v gordon

Emily V. Gordon, who earned a best original screenplay Oscar nomination with her husband Kumail Nanjiani this week for The Big Sick, will adapt the feature version of The Nest for Amazon.

Cynthia D’Aprix bestseller centres on dysfunctional siblings whose trust fund is put in jeopardy when 19-year-old Leo is involved in a drunk driving incident.

Transparent creator Jill Soloway and Andrea Sperling will produce the project through Soloway’s production company, Topple. Carly Kahane will be the executive on the project for Topple.

Gordon is a former couples and family therapist and current writer and producer. She has written for The Carmichael Show on NBC, Another Period on Comedy Central, and Crashing on HBO.

Amazon Studios acquired The Big Sick at Sundance 2016 and the film grossed more than $40m theatrically in North America.

Topple and Amazon Studios collaborated on Transparent and I Love Dick.
