After A became one of the most-watched mini-series on Netflix with The Chief, it was almost an envelope that many would enjoy a wave of surprising success. Perhaps not surprisingly, it was the production that had the strength to bring chess back into fashion.
Although mother Taylor Joy, who also won a Golden Globe for her role in The Lead, indicated that in Hollywood, one can never say, but the creators denied planning a second season of the story.
Now, according to Variety, the stage rights for the book, Walter Tevis’ novel of the same title, which was published in 1983 as the basis for the series The Chief, have been purchased by New York’s production agency, Level Forward. The Level Forward founder is Abigail Disney, heiress to the Walt Disney empire, who set up the production office in 2018, among other things, to showcase inspiring female characters.
The story of Beth Harmon, who grew up in an orphanage after the death of her parents, fits this idea perfectly, the master of chess.
