Christopher Storer, creator of The Bear, sets up a series adaptation of All the Other Mothers Hate Me at FX.
I feel like The Bear has joined the ranks of The Wire and Breaking Bad as one of those shows that people endlessly recommend to the point of frustration for everyone else. And you know what? I’m one of those people; it’s a damn-good show. It’s so good that fans are eager to follow The Bear creator Christopher Storer to whatever new series he does next.
THR has reported that Christopher Storer and FX have landed the rights to All the Other Mothers Hate Me by Sarah Harman following a massive bidding war. The novel follows “an American woman who suspects her son may have killed a wealthy student at his West London private school.” Although the novel won’t be published until 2025, it was one of the biggest titles at the Frankfurt Book Fair and attracted a lot of interest. THR states that Harman is expected to adapt her novel for FX under the supervision of Storer. The Bear creator will also produce the potential series through his American Light & Fixture production banner alongside Josh Senior and Cooper Wehde.
All the Other Mothers Hate Me isn’t the only project Christopher Storer has in the works, as he’s also set to direct a feature-film adaptation of Don Winslow’s The Winter of Frankie Machine.
“Frankie Machianno, a hard-working entrepreneur, passionate lover, part-time surf bum, and full-time dad, is a pillar of his waterfront community—and a retired hitman,” reads the official description of the novel. “Once better known as Frankie Machine, he was a brutally efficient killer. Now someone from his past wants him dead, and after a botched attempt on his life, Frankie sets out to find his potential killers. However, the list of suspects is longer than the California coastline. With the mob on his heels and the cops on his tail, Frankie hatches a plan to protect his family, save his life, and escape the mob forever. Then things get really complicated.“
As for The Bear, the series stars Jeremy Allen White as a young, award-winning chef who returns to his hometown of Chicago to manage the chaotic kitchen at his deceased brother’s sandwich shop. The second season of the series dropped this summer and was just as powerful as the first. A third season hasn’t been confirmed, but that’s not a huge surprise due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
