Netflix and acclaimed author Harlan Coben, one of the staunchest partnerships in the streaming service, strike again. This time, the streamer is developing Coben’s full length. Myron Bolitar series, which will be the first not to be a limited series and the first set in the US.
As Coben revealed to Term, currently, there are no assistant writers or directors, and he himself is not entirely sure if he will be on the writing team. However, he has commented on this partnership with Netflix:
Myron Bolitar is dear to my heart. I’ve written 34 books, a third of them involve Myron Bolitar; he’s my most prized possession, and I’m so happy now that he’s in Netflix camp, so we can work hard to get it right. It’s one of the properties that I’ve probably been a little bit more precious for. It’s easier to move a story like The Stranger or Stay Close to another country. Myron is a series character that people read over and over again, take care of himself a little more and have to be in the United States. So I’m really excited to get started on that.
So far, seven of Coben’s novels have been made into Netflix limited series: three in the UK (Surein 2018; The stranger2020; stay close2021), two in Poland (the forest, 2020; Y hold on tight2022) and one in Spain (The innocent2021) and France (gone forever2021).
What is the plot of Myron Bolitar?
by Harlan Coben Myron Bolitar book series tells the story of the main character, a former NBA player and sports agent. The series spans 11 novels so far and it would make sense if Netflix started adapting them from the start. It is also possible that Netflix will try to adapt two books per season, carefully tying them together, similar to The Sandman. Here is the logline for the book series:
A lanky, self-deprecating former NBA basketball star, Myron became a sports agent after a broken knee ended his basketball career. His big heart and generosity often lead him to play detective for his clients who have problems that need solving. Myron’s colleague, Esperanza, and his billionaire best friend, Win, often help him with his cases. (Who wouldn’t want a billionaire best friend?) He also has a nephew named Mickey, who has his own young adult series. (His uncle Myron also stops by occasionally to help.)

«Not me. I’ll be honest, that’s always been a difficult thing for me. With a regular character (Matt was played by Mario Casas in Spain, or Adam, who was played by Richard Armitage, or Cush Jumbo playing Cassie), I can change to those people. Myron is much more difficult because people have such a definite idea of what he looks like. So, really, no actor comes to mind. Many years ago I had considered trying to make Myron into a movie, and they were talking about all the big famous movie stars of the moment. They’re all wonderfully talented, but I was like, I can’t see that guy as Myron. So it’s going to be very difficult. I trust Netflix will scout the world in casting and find to the perfect person for us”.
