The Most-Talked About Organization Book is Set to Become a TV Show
Marie Kondo’s bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, is getting the sitcom treatment.
Clean freaks everywhere, rejoice. The organization bible of 2015, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo, is being adapted into a TV comedy for NBC. If you haven’t had a chance to read the bestseller, it’s all about using the KonMari method to declutter—organize and toss things by category and only keep the things that “spark joy” in your life.
The half-hour sitcom will "center on a young woman in a moment of crisis who attempts to get her messy life in order," Deadline reports. Erica Oyama, who was recently hired to write an Amy Poehler-produced comedy, Schooled, will write the script and executive produce with Greg Malins.
We recently spoke with Kondo about tips for decluttering kids’ rooms (gems include “say[ing] thank you to the artwork for the weeks or months of pleasure it has given to your family, and let[ting] it go.”). Find the rest of her advice from that interview here.
Since the new show is still in development, you have plenty of time to brush up on your knowledge of the KonMari method before it airs.
