Bookouture sign agreement with The Artists Partnership
Bookouture are delighted to announce that they have appointed Emily Hayward-Whitlock and Sarah Vignoles of The Artists Partnership to represent their authors’ books for film, stage and TV. The Artists Partnership is a leading international agency representing actors, screenwriters, playwrights, directors and book to film, and with their sister company, The Development Partnership, linking those resources with producers and broadcasters. They represent many high-profile actors including Idris Elba, Joseph Fiennes and Emily Blunt, and recent deals include adaptations of Pure by Rose Cartwright currently shooting with Channel 4, H is for Hawk by Helen MacDonald to Plan B, Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman to Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and a project being specifically devised with an author by the Development Partnership for Kim Cattrall.
Peta Nightingale, Head of Talent, said:
I love the traditional way that Emily and Sarah work, and the goals of The Artists Partnership in matching talent with great projects mirror everything we’re trying to achieve at Bookouture. Keeping this under our own umbrella was key to our publishing ethos, and we couldn’t be happier that such a smart, hard-working team with the best industry contacts, will be working to add value for our authors on rights that we were previously unable to utilise.
Emily Hayward-Whitlock said:
We are very excited to be working with Bookouture. The range and breadth of material is amazing and they’re so forward thinking in their approach to storytelling which fits perfectly with the film and TV industry’s huge appetite for material.
We do hope you will join us on Facebook and Twitter to celebrate.
