Joey will also serve as executive producer.

Uglies “is set in a world in which a compulsory operation at sixteen wipes out physical differences and makes everyone pretty by conforming to an ideal standard of beauty.”

“Sources say King long has been a fan of the series and brought the series to Netflix – called them, got them to read the script and the book, and then King got Netflix to option it,” Deadline reports of Joey‘s participation.

Joey definitely has a busy schedule lined up: next week, Joey‘s new Blumhouse horror film The Lie will premiere on Prime Video. Check out the trailer here!
