Matador authors and Future Films sign TV joint venture
Penny Avis and Joanna Berry, co-authors of women’s fiction series Never Mind the Botox: Alex, Rachel, Stella and Meredith, have sold the rights to their self-published books series to Future Films. The series, about four professional women working on the sale of a cosmetic surgery business, and international film & TV production company Future Films Limited, who take productions from pre-financing to distribution and sales, signed an agreement to develop and produce a series of television programmes intended for international broadcast distribution based upon their books. The books have been self-published by the authors through Matador, with the first in the series, Alex, published in May 2011, and the second, Rachel, due out in January 2012.
Stephen Margolis, CEO of Future Films said “We are delighted to be working with Penny and Joanna on this exciting project. We believe the Never Mind the Botoxbook series has great potential for adaptation as a TV drama series and look forward to bringing it to fruition over the coming months.”
Penny and Joanna commented, “We are thrilled to have entered into this joint venture agreement with Future Films, which gives us the opportunity to be involved in the project every step of the way. We already have a vision for how our books can be adapted for TV, and with Future Film’s guidance and experience we are looking forward to making that vision a reality."
