Sony has set rising scribe Emily Jerome to adapt Among the Bros, an upcoming book that details the story behind a drug ring bust at a South Carolina college.
Written by journalist Max Marshall and set to be published by HarperCollins, Bros is an investigative memoir that explores the deep and at times dark societal roots of fraternity culture in America. It centers on a 2016 bust in Charleston, South Carolina, involving a caper that began as an attempt to join the cool crowd at the College of Charleston and ended in a chain of betrayals and a murder.
Marshall concurrently covers his own time in a fraternity and the attendant privileged lifestyle before he becomes disenchanted and quits, and how covering the arrests and trial forces him to reckon with his own upbringing.
No producer is attached.
Jerome, a Columbia University grad, was a journalist before making the transition to screenwriting with her script Panopticon, a thriller that tackled corruption in the U.S. prison system and made the Black List, putting her on the map for executives. Panopticon was subsequently picked up by Stuart Ford’s AGC Studios with Ridley Scott attached as a producer.
Jerome is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Lichter Grossman.
