''The Nine Lives of Chloe King'' is a three-book series by Celia Thomson that was adapted in 2011 as a 10-episode mini-series by Creator/ABCFamily. The book series features Chloe, a young girl who seems to fall to her death at the beginning of the first book. After a mysterious recovery, she finds that she's changing and may not actually be human, but rather a member of a catlike race, the Mai, who can never truly co-exist with humanity. Moreover, she may be the reincarnation of the race's destined leader with nine lives and new powers, and the existing power base is not happy with that fact.

The television show was cancelled as of August 16, 2011, although it may be getting a MadeForTV movie.
