IMG will handle international sales for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, BBC America’s eight-episode series based on the cult novels by The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams. Written and executive produced by Max Landis, the series is set to debut in the fall.
Starring Samuel Barnett as the title character, along with Elijah Wood and Hannah Marks, Dirk Gently follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric “holistic” detective Dirk Gently and his reluctant assistant Todd (Wood), as they find their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season. The pair encounter a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.
Ideate Media’s Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah also executive produce with IDW Entertainment’s Ted Adams and David Ozer, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion.
