Netflix Orders Forsman OGN Adaptation I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS

Yet another Charles Forsman original graphic novel (OGN) is coming to Netflix with the announcement that I Am Not Okay With This will be adapted as a series.

The Forsman OGN, I Am Not Okay With This, who also wrote The End of the F***ing World, his other Netflix-adapted series, tells the story of Sydney, a seemingly normal 15-year-old freshman in a coming-of-age story. She is currently navigating her trials and tribulations, while dealing with the complexities of her family, sexuality and mysterious superpowers that are just now beginning to awaken deep inside of her, all while juggling high school.

The project lines up an All-Star creative team, behind writer Christy Hall, with the director of The End of the F***ing World, Jonathan Entwistle, and the Stranger Things producers, Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen, among others.

The first season is set to run eight episodes, but there is no news yet on a cast or whether this will be an animated or live-action series.
