Terri captioned the post: “Other news I can’t quite believe I actually share: Genius @billiepiper will be starring and producing the TV adaptation of Coming Undone. And I write it.
“There is so much to say about Billie’s brilliance and warmth and wit and fire and why she is the perfect person to be the heart and soul of our series, but there will be time for all of that. For now HOLY SH*T is all I have,” she added.
Billie also shared the announcement on her Instagram Story on Tuesday, saying of Terri’s book, “If you haven’t read this, get it now. It’s an incredible read. I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
