Patricia Lockwood’s Memoir ‘Priestdaddy’ Optioned by Imagine Television

Poet’s book was published in May and focuses on moving into her father’s rectory

Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Television has optioned poet Patricia Lockwood’s recent memoir, “Priestdaddy.”

The project is being developed as a limited series and is based on the book that was published in May 2017 by the Riverhead imprint of Penguin Random House.

“Priestdaddy” includes details of Lockwood’s childhood as the daughter of a married Lutheran minister who converted to Catholicism, making him among the rare married Catholic priests.

The book also follows Lockwood and her husband falling into financial difficulty and moving back to live with her parents in her father’s rectory.

Lockwood’s poetry collections include 2012’s “Balloon Pop Outlaw Black” and 2014’s “Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals.”
