CBS Producing Drama Based on Stacey Abrams Romance Novel

Stacey Abrams, losing Georgia gubernatorial candidate will executive produce a drama for CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

CBS is set to develop a drama series based on a romance novel, one of eight, written by Abrams in 2004, under the pen name Selena Montgomery and entitled Never Tell.  

The project from CBS Television Studios and PatMa Productions is being written by Talicia Raggs, a co-executive producer of NCIS: New Orleans. Never Tell, follows the tale of a star linguistics professor with a complicated past who joins forces with a charismatic investigative journalist, following the discovery of a cryptic message that’s the only clue in a missing persons case. It sets them off on a partnership working cases for the New Orleans Police Department.

Breitbart reports, “Abrams, who continues to claim she did not lose the 2018 election for governor despite losing by 50,000 votes to Republican Brian Kemp, has claimed she only lost the election because of “voter suppression.” Abrams launched a voting rights organization called Fair Fight 2020.”

In August Abrams announced that she would not be running for president, however she has continued to be an active and vocal figure throughout the ongoing presidential race. Abrams was among the names Joe Biden listed when asked who he would consider picking as his female vice presidential picks.

The other suggestively titled novels written by Abrams /Montgomery are “Reckless,” Deception,” Secrets and Lies,” Hidden Sins,” Rules of Engagement,” The Art of Desire” and “Power of Persuasion.”

Media Research Center writer Gabriel Hays blasted the project as” another shameless example of Hollywood taking care of its lefty” allies.

“Hollywood is the entertainment arm for the Democratic Party, we get that. However, it’s weird to think both establishments are so intertwined that even individuals as successful as failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate and former romance novelist Stacey Abram gets one of her naughty memoirs turned into a full-length TV series,” Hays wrote. “We’ll be getting a romance thriller TV show, all because the author is an avowed radical lefty.”
