The MARY RUSSELL SERIES
featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes
Well, no, it’s not real yet. Don’t get our your popcorn quite this early. But I’m headed off for Left Coast Crime tomorrow morning and we just just JUST signed the papers and so I wanted to tell you before I go that we’ve sold the rights to an English production company, one that is just bursting with excitement and ideas and that seems to get the whole idea of Russell & Holmes!!
Here’s the official take on it:
New York Times bestselling author Laurie R. King’s “Mary Russell Series” is now under option to be developed as a television series with King as an active consultant. This beloved series is now comprised of 16 books and counting—King will begin writing a new novel in the series later this summer. More information about the production company optioning the series and their plans will be announced in an updated release later this spring.
More (YES!) to come.
But, do I have your permission to have a glass of champagne at LCC? Or maybe (it being in Honolulu) a MaiTai?
