UK lit and talent agency Curtis Brown Group has signed Scottish publishing label BHP Comics for film and TV representation.
BHP’s publisher and founder Sha Nazir recently brought on board author and screenwriter Gary Chudleigh as BHP’s freelance creative producer. The aim is to take some of the company’s projects from page to screen.
Glasgow-based publishing house BHP re-positioned itself in 2016 as a book publisher, making graphic novels and art books. Their output includes Frank Quitely’s Drawings+Sketches, Dave Cook and Craig Paton’s Killtopia and Gary Chudleigh and Tanya Roberts’ Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles.
BHP’s portfolio will be represented at Curtis Brown by Luke Speed, Media Rights Agent for the group.
Chudleigh commented, “BHP publishes a variety of books that are perfect for the screen. We’ve made fantastic steps taking them into the world of film and TV and having Curtis Brown Group in our corner will be instrumental in achieving our goals.”
