We handle film, television and stage adaptation rights in our clients’ books and co-agent for Faber and Faber and a number of other agencies from time to time. Unusually for a boutique size agency, we also specialise in helping novelists write for screen and the screenwriters we represent reflect the high calibre of our literary client list. A list of screenwriting clients and clients for whom we only represent book to screen can be found here. We currently have over 100 projects in active development for TV, film or stage.
If you are enquiring about the availability of dramatic rights in any of our titles, please e-mail Lesley Thorne’s assistant Ashiokai Omaboe (Ashiokai@aitkenalexander.co.uk) in the first instance. Enquiries regarding screenwriters should be directed to Lesley Thorne (Lesley@aitkenalexander.co.uk).
Enquiries regarding presenting/broadcasting work or speaking engagements should be directed to Leah Middleton (Leah@aitkenalexander.co.uk) who specialises in this area. A list of clients actively seeking work in this area can be found here. Any enquiries regarding stage licensing should also go to Leah in the first instance.
