The Breathing Method Headed to TV

Posted: June 28, 2016, 23:11:19

reports that The Breathing Method will be turned into a TV series.


In 2012, it was announced that Blum was developing The Breathing Method as a feature film project through Universal, with Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister) slated to direct from a script by Scott Teems. Theres no word on whether Derrickson will be involved with the television series. Its active, says Blum. Its moving along.

The Breathing Method, which is the only one of the four novellas from Different Seasons to not yet receive the big screen treatment, tells the bizarrely romantic and heartbreaking story of an elderly Manhattan doctor who recounts his long ago encounter with a pregnant woman who is determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, despite being poor and having no family. As the doctor teaches the woman his unique breathing method, to help her get through childbirth, he falls in love with her.

The television series will focus on the relationship between the doctor and the woman, which begins in the 1930s, which leaves lots of room to explore the relationship between the doctor and the womans child, a boy, who is born in the story after his mother is decapitated. Hes then put up for adoption but watched over by the doctor, who keeps track of the boys and the resulting mans progress.

No network is currently attached.

I dont know about you but Im not that excited about this news. Sounds kind of boring actually. What do you think? Could this be a success if done?

Thanks to Herbert West.
