Television and film[edit]

A number of Gran's novels have come to the attention of the film and television industry. Her 2003 novel Come Closer was looked at by director Carter Smith although, as of October 2012, nothing has yet been released.[2][3] The same applies to her 2006 novel Dope which had actress Julianne Moore slated as the lead role, although no episodes have yet been released.[4][5]

Gran has written scripts for the TNT show Southland and is developing an adaptation of Corinne May Botz's novel Nutshell Studies with director / producer Guillermo del Toro.[6][7]
