Amazing news, Peachtree Bluff fans! My fabulous friends Sheryl Anderson, Caron Tschampion, and I are working on the most fun adaptation of my Peachtree Bluff Series for NBC! Producer Jenna Nicholson and I met about this project for the first time in 2019, so we are so thrilled to finally be able to announce this collaboration! Jenna and producer Jeffrey Kramer have a truly amazing vision for my books, and I couldn’t be more excited to share this news with all of you!

 

FROM DEADLINE

 

EXCLUSIVESweet Magnolias showrunner Sheryl J. Anderson and writer Caron Tschampion have teamed up with author Kristy Woodson Harvey to adapt the latter’s Peachtree Bluff novel series for NBC.

The network has put the TV adaptation into development with Ally McBeal co-exec producer Jeffrey Kramer and Jenna Nicholson exec producing.

The one-hour drama is centered around Ansley Murphy, who when her three adult daughters run to her in their charming seaside hometown of Peachtree Bluff, Ga., trying to escape problems that are shattering their personal lives, she’s delighted to help, until their presence exposes a secret that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family.

Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, is producing.

Woodson Harvey and Tschampion will write and co-exec produce with Anderson as writer and exec producer. Kramer will exec produce via his newly independent Juniper Place Productions, and former Juniper Place exec Nicholson, who now oversees DeVon Franklin’s TV department, will also EP.

Woodson Harvey is the author of nine novels including four in The Peachtree Bluff series. That series of books includes Slightly South of Simple, The Secret to Southern Charm, The Southern Side of Paradise and Christmas in Peachtree Bluff.

Tschampion has written on series including Ugly Betty, Halt and Catch Fire and Rubicon in addition to her work on Netflix series Sweet Magnolias.

Anderson is the executive producer/showrunner of the same Netflix series, which recently wrapped production on its second season. Previously, she was creator/showrunner Ties That Bind, UPtv’s first scripted series.

Kramer said, “I am thrilled to share in the transfer of Kristy Woodson Harvey’s book series to television. Kristy is a star on the page and will be on screen. She is a talented young writer partnering on this with Caron Tschampion and showrunner Sheryl J. Anderson. This caliber of talent augurs well for the future of this show.”

Harvey is repped by CAA and The Book Group, Tschampion is repped by Gersh and The Cartel, Anderson is repped by The Cartel and Kramer is repped by Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof + Fishman. Nicholson is repped by Jared Bloch at Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.

Christmas in Peachtree Bluff - Kristy Woodson Harvey

 

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree Bluff Trailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

Stylish work places,

And the coziest bedrooms,

 

 

Combine to create an oasis that is big on style. 

 

 

The thoughtful details of every room are, perhaps, the very best part. From a well-placed reading sconce for guests,

 

 

To a perfectly picked wallpaper,

 

 

Colors and tones blend,

 

 

While patterns blur, 

 

 

And each room has a personality all its own that still feels like a cohesive part of the whole. 

 

 

A well-collected feeling pervades.

 

 

And comfort is key in this chic Malibu home. It’s the perfect place to spend this remaining week of summer–and savor that sunshiney feeling all year long.

Thanks for visiting Design Chic!  We always love seeing you here!

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree BluffTrailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

​Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, NYT bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Cape Carolina. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.
