Fox 2000 has optioned Go the F**k to Sleep, a satirical parenting self-help book by Adam Mansbach.

The story explores the bedtime routine of parents and their children. Variety writes that despite the title, “it’s actually a tender, tongue-in-cheek peek inside a father’s journey of putting his child down for the night.”

The studio hasn’t yet chosen a writer or director. Here's a sample verse:

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.

The lambs have laid down with the sheep.

You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear

Please go the f**k to sleep.
