Curtis Brown is one of only a few New York literary agencies that can boast its own full-service Film & Television Department. We’ve had decades of success in selling our clients’ dramatic rights directly to Hollywood producers, having found that doing so streamlines the process and ensures that our clients’ needs are met and that their rights are fully and properly protected. With nearly one hundred of our clients’ titles currently in development, our clients’ books have been made into:

  • studio and independent feature films
  • television movies and miniseries
  • television series
  • stage plays
  • musicals and operas

Many of our authors have adapted their own work for the large and small screens. Though our primary focus is selling the dramatic rights to books by our authors, we also represent an exclusive list of screenwriters.
