The book to film department is headed up by Emily Hayward Whitlock. We represent the film and TV rights for a leading number of literary agencies and publishers including Serpents Tail, Janklow and Nesbit, Caroline Sheldon, The Agency Group, The Bent Agency, Bonomi Associates, Rogers Coleridge, Johnson & Alcock, Profile Books and White and Unbound Books to name a few.
Recent deals include the sale of the film rights to H IS FOR HAWK to Lena Heady, VERY BRITISH PROBLEMS to Alaska Productions for a Channel 4 three parter, THE MISTRESS CONTRACT, the highest grossing show ever at The Royal Court and Mary Beard’s POMPEI and ROME series for BBC.
We represent books on a case by case basis from literary fiction and non-fiction to YA and children’s. We are also interested in life rights and have an amazing resource of acting talent at the agency to draw upon.
