'Content Is King' says Curtis Brown Agent

'Content Is King' says Curtis Brown Agent

As the Bookseller recently reported, demand for TV rights has 'never been higher'. New streaming platforms and production services are popping up everyday as studio executives race to find the next best thing. With more to gain and even more to lose, risks are being taken like never before and title options are essential.

Books serve as a ready-made, fast film meal to studios, with much of the work having been sculpted by the author and publisher. In a fast moving world, this collaboration provides the opportunity for writers and publishers to expand the reach and relevancy of their content even further.

Luckily we offer TV & Film rights on almost all of the titles we publish. Check out our 'Rights Availability' for details on how to contact us.

In the meantime, here is a list of some of our favourite book to screen adaptations:

- One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

- The Color Purple (1985)

- Room (2015)

- Lord of The Rings (all of them)

- Hidden Figures (2016)

- Harry Potter (again, it's just too hard to choose)

 - To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)

- Stand By Me (1986)

- Requiem For A Dream (2000)

 - The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

We love books, so we can keep going...

(Our director's favourite is The Shining, but we left it off because King didn't like the Kubrick version - did you?)
