What Makes a
Great Literary Adaptation?

Turning words into action – what makes a great literary adaptation? Three experts on acquiring novels for TV and film discuss the role of the author, current trends and the power of IP.
ILP CEO for UK & Europe, Hilary Strong, was recently featured in Broadcast Magazine’s Roundtable on literary IP, alongside Raffaella de Angelis, Literary Acquisitions, Global Drama at Fremantle, and Hannah Griffiths, Head of Literary Acquisitions at All3Media. Thank you to Robin Parker at Broadcast (MBI) for hosting such an interesting discussion.

“Authors and producers speak different languages – more so for authors’ beneficiaries, because it’s not their world. We spend a lot of time making sure we bridge that gap.”
