HarperCollins, Insurrection Media Strike Deal to Turn Books Into Series

HarperCollins Publishers has struck a deal with Insurrection Media to option and develop books for adaptation as TV or digital series, the companies announced Monday.

The first HarperCollins book under consideration by the alliance is the trilogy “Mila 2.0,” written by Debra Driza and published by Katherine Tegen Books.

“The leaders at HarperCollins are an incredibly innovative team who understand the transformational power of digital,” said Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, CEO of Insurrection Media “We look forward to turning many of their exceptional books into captivating video series that will do justice to the original stories and allow the authors’ tremendous work to come alive on screen.”

“Our partnership with Insurrection Media provides a new and innovative path to market for a book or series that we believe has potential to be both a literary and video or television success,” said Chantal Restivo-Alessi, Chief Digital Officer, at HarperCollins.

Van Rensselaer launched Insurrection in July with backing from Allen DeBevoise’s Third Wave Capital Partners. Last month, Insurrection struck a similar deal with Skybound Entertainment, the production banner of “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman.
