Gold Diggers will be adapted for TV by actress and producer Mindy Kaling's Kaling International and Warner Bros. Television. Sanjena will co-write the adaptation while Mindy Kaling is set to executive produce.
"Spanning two continents, two coasts, and four epochs, Gold Diggers expertly balances social satire and magical realism in a classic striver story that skewers the model minority narrative, asking what a community must do to achieve the American dream," according to the book's publisher.
