Page to Screen: Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “All The Light We Cannot See” to become Epic Netflix Limited Series

In Netflix’s sweeping continuation of developing Page to Screen projects All The Light We Cannot See is next on their development roster.

Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller All The Light We Cannot See will become an epic four-part Netflix limited series produced by Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment (Stranger Things, Free Guy, Shadow and Bone, Arrival) and written by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders). Shawn Levy is set to direct all episodes. All the Light We Cannot See tells the story of Marie-Laure, a teenager who is blind, and Werner, a German soldier, whose paths collide in occupied France as they both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

All The Light We Cannot See quickly became a global phenomenon when it was published in 2014 and has received wide critical acclaim as well as a Pulitzer Prize in 2015, and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction in 2015. All the Light We Cannot See has spent more than 200 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, and has sold more than 5.7 million copies in North America across print, e-book and audio formats and another 9.5 million copies worldwide. This page to screen adaptation promises to leave our emotions in a bind, as the rich and descriptive world of the novel comes to life on screen.
