The Adoration of Jenna Fox Cover - P 2015

The company's previous credits include the Justin Bieber documentary 'Believe' and Nickelodeon shows 'Zoey 101' and 'Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide.'

Dolphin films has acquired the rights to New York Times best-selling author Mary E. Pearson's young adult novel The Adoration of Jenna Fox.

The story follows a 17-year-old girl who has just awoken from a yearlong coma and, despite her family's efforts to try and spark her memory, she can't recall anything and can't shake the feeling that something is terribly off about the accident that took away her past.

Dolphin Films CEO Bill O'Dowd will produce alongside Julia Pistor (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events). Gary Williams will adapt the book for the screen.

"There are a lot of YA stories about self-discovery, but Jenna takes this to a new level as she first needs to figure out who she was before she can move forward and decide who she wants to be," Pistor said.    

The rights to the two other novels in the Fox Chronicles trilogy, Fox Inheritance and Fox Forever, have also been secured by Dolphin.

Dolphin is the company behind Nickelodeon shows Zoey 101 and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide as well as the Justin Bieber documentary Believe.
