HiddenLight Productions, the prodco started by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton and Sam Branson, has acquired the rights to adapt Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s book The Daughters of Kobani for television.

Drawing upon hundreds of hours of interviews and on-the-ground reporting, The Daughters of Kobani is the story of an all-female Kurdish militia who took on ISIS in Northern Syria and won.

The book, due to be published by Penguin Press on February 16, will be developed as a TV drama series.

HiddenLight was founded in December with offices in London, New York and LA. The company is led by executive chair Roma Khanna and CEO Johnny Webb.

The Daughters of Kobani project follows HiddenLight’s Gutsy Women, a series for Apple TV+ inspired by US politician Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea’s book about inspirational women.

Hillary Clinton said: “The Daughters of Kobani is an extraordinary account of brave, defiant women fighting for justice and equality. We created HiddenLight to celebrate heroes – sung and unsung alike – whose courage is too often overlooked, and we could not be more thrilled to bring this inspiring story to viewers around the world.”
