Several popular novels are about to go from the top of the best-seller list to the small screen. Here are seven book-to-TV adaptations currently in the works.

ABC is developing a 10-hour limited series on Ken Follett’s best-selling novel, which follows the lives of five families that become entangled by the first World War. The Fall of Giants is the first in the author’s Century Trilogy, which also includes the books Winter of the World and Edge of Eternity.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ann Peacock (The Dovekeepers, Chronicles of Narnia) is on board to pen the script and executive-produce the project. Depending on how Giants performs, the network may adapt the second and third books of the trilogy into either two more 10-hour event series or a continuing hour-long scripted series.
