Nancy Glass’s Glass Entertainment Group is shopping a TV adaptation to assorted networks and platforms of its Confronting: Columbine podcast, which delves into the 1999 shooting and bombing at Columbine High School.
Confronting: Columbine, which launched on Apple Podcasts May 4, is the latest chapter in Glass Podcasts’ Confronting anthology.
The series is hosted by Amy Over, a Columbine survivor and director of fundraising at The Rebels Project, a mass shooting survivor support organization.
On the podcast, Over confronts her experience at Columbine by going back to the school for the first time in 20 years. She talks with former classmates, investigators and others who have been affected by the shootings.
The previous season of Confronting, which tackled the O.J. Simpson case, was named Apple Podcasts’ number four podcast of 2019 and garnered more than seven million downloads since June 2019.
“Confronting is the perfect example of our podcast goal — telling compelling stories that can seamlessly translate for linear and streaming platforms,” Glass said in a statement.
GEG, founded in 2007, specializes in unscripted TV series, special and podcasts, and has produced for the likes of TLC, E!, Nat Geo Wild, CNN, A&E, Snapchat and others.
The Philadelphia-headquartered company recently partnered with MTV International for the series My Life on MTV, bowing later this month.
