Bestselling Children’s Book Author Adam Gidwitz ’00 Tops the Netflix Charts


The bestselling trilogy, A Tale Dark & Grimm, written by children’s book author and Park alumnus Adam Gidwitz ’00, is now a top-rated animated series. A Tale Dark & Grimm premiered as one of the top 10 most watched shows on all of Netflix, both in the United States and in countries around the world. 

In an interview with School Library Journal, Adam talks about how involved he was in the production of the Netflix series:

To the credit of the entire creative team, I got to be really involved. I was in the writer’s rooms (we met in LA twice, for a few days each—and then, in the middle of the second meeting, Tom Hanks got COVID and the whole world shut down). I got to read all the scripts and give notes. Then I got to watch all the animatics, which are like rough drafts of the episodes, and give notes again.
