What WE DO
We're consultants who manage & report on the literary world for film & television companies.

So many successful films and television shows have come from books, from the film franchises HARRY POTTER and THE BOURNE IDENTITY, to hit TV series like OUTLANDER, BIG LITTLE LIES, and ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. Even the classic Steven Spielberg movie JAWS was adapted from a book.

But how do producers and studios find this material, which is often optioned prior to publication? And how do they secure the rights to adapt it? That's where we come in.

We are here to help your company identify the best material for your ambitions and talent relationships, and to bring you into the larger conversation with agents and rights holders.

Get in touch and let us know how we can help.
