Amazon has launched a full-season adaptation of Harlan Coben’s “Shelter” series. In 2021, Amazon had given approval for the pilot episode. In the thriller series based on Coben’s first novel in the Mickey Bolitar trilogy, Jaden Michael will star as Bolitar as he navigates his new life with a mother in rehab, a dead father, and a frustrating aunt, and the character will start a new school in New Jersey with a camel as the mascot.
Ghost or not, when a creepy old woman tells Mickey that his father isn’t dead, Mickey makes sure he’s lost his mind above all else. Mickey finds a foothold in Ashley Kent, a new student experiencing her own tragedy. Later, Ashley disappears, and while Mickey searches for her, she learns that everything she told him was a lie. He realizes that he is in serious danger unless he learns what happened to him and his father and begins to investigate. Mickey’s quest thrusts him into a world of conspiracy, lies, and humanity’s darkest aspects.
“It’s an honor to work with this exciting young cast and our partners at Prime Video and MGM. I really believe we’re going to do something special.” The cast includes Michael as Constance Zimmer as Shira Bolitar, Adrian Greensmith as Arthur “Spoon” Spindell, Abby Corrigan as Ema Winslow, Troy as Troy. Brian Altemus and Sage Linder as Rachel Caldwell. Coben also serves as executive producer on the project, where MGM’s Rola Bauer oversees the series for the studio.
Charlotte Coben will serve as producer and Erik Barmack as executive producer. Patricia Cardoso was the director and producer of the pilot episode. “Shelter” is a co-production between MGM International Television Productions and Amazon Studios. Coben has sold more than 75 million books worldwide, many of which have received recent TV adaptations.
