Hulu has given an 8-episode drama series order to the adaptation of Alexis Schaitkin’s acclaimed debut novel, “Saint X,” from ABC Signature. The logline: “Saint X” is a psychological drama, told in multiple timelines and perspectives, which explores and upends the girl-gone-missing genre. It’s a show about how a young woman’s mysterious death during an idyllic Caribbean vacation creates a traumatic ripple effect that eventually pulls her surviving sister into a dangerous pursuit of the truth.

“Saint X” joins Hulu’s slate of book-to-screen adaptations, including “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Shrill,” “Little Fires Everywhere,” “Normal People,” “Nine Perfect Strangers” and upcoming series “Conversations with Friends.”
