Agatha Christie Estate Inks With WME

Properties include more than 80 novels and 19 plays

WME has signed the Agatha Christie estate for representation.

The tenpercentery will represent all facets of her estate, expanding its reach across TV, film and digital media. Besides the Christie family, which has a 36% stake in the name, Acorn Prods. owns the remaining stake and WME will work closely with both to help develop the many properties that come with the British mystery scribe’s name.

These include more than 80 novels and short story collections, 19 plays and an expansive media library. It also holds ownership of well-known characters Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, which have both become successful TV franchises.

This pact is another major signing for WME, which earlier this year signed Oprah Winfrey for representation.
