NETFLIX AND SUGAR23 ACQUIRE SCREEN RIGHTS TO "THE BOYS' CLUB"

In a competitive situation, Netflix and Sugar23 have acquired the rights to Erica Katz's upcoming book The Boys' Club and are developing a film to be based on the book

Logline: The Boys' Club follows first-year female associate Alex Vogel as she navigates her way through a top Manhattan law firm. She quickly becomes seduced by the allure of NYC high-life that is offered by big paychecks and elite status, while having to confront the realities of male privilege that is still very much alive in 2019.

Producers: Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta for Sugar23

Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins will publish the book in the US. Trapeze, an imprint of Orion/Hachette will publish in the UK. The book will be published Summer 2020.
