MGM Television has secured the television rights to Margaret Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last. The novel, published in fall 2015, tells the story of Stan and Charmaine, a young couple who live out of their car after experiencing job loss and bankruptcy during a nationwide economic collapse. They think the gated community of Consilience may be the answer, but they must sign a life contract that offers them a job and a house six months out of the year. For the rest of the year, they must serve as inmates in the Positron prison system. At first, this seems worth it: but when a series of troubling events unfolds, Positron seems like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.
