"The Changeling" is described as a "fairytale for grown-ups" that's part horror story, part parenthood fable, and a "perilous odyssey through a New York City you didn't know existed."

The book's main character, Apollo Kagwa, is an antiquarian book dealer who is beginning to settle into his new life as a devoted father when his wife Emma begins acting strangely and eventually disappears. He meets a mysterious stranger who provides him with information about Emma's whereabouts and embarks on a quest to find her.

The series will be written and adapted by Kelly Marcel, known for "Cruella" and "Venom." Melina Matsoukas, known for "Insecure," is set to direct.

It sounds like I could get all that by just going to New York City and trying to walk through Central Park at night, unarmed.

At the risk of sounding pessimistic, tell me why would I do this?

I think if you walk through Central Park, at night, unarmed on LSD you could probably skip the show. Plus you’d need to repeat all that one night a week for something like 10 weeks. Me, I’d skip all that and probably watch the show. 🙃
