Author Christie Hsiao’s ‘Journey to Rainbow Island’ will be adapted into a TV series and stage musical.

Serenity Media Group’s Christie Hsiao has signed a partnership with South Korea’s Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) network to make a TV series and stage musical of her novel Journey to Rainbow Island.

Hsiao believes the Korean deal will be a stepping stone to further sales in Asia. The deal involves the production of a children’s musical TV series, as well as a translation of the novel into Korean. The Korean language book will come out in October 2015, followed by a stage musical in the first half of 2016. “I have always envisioned Journey to Rainbow Island as an international project that can reach audiences all over the world,” Hsiao tells THR.
