Foundry’s in-house Filmed Entertainment department works to develop a custom strategy for each author and every book, taking into account film, television, stage and digital opportunities. For this, we call on our team’s years of experience and countless relationships – and where advantageous, the relationships of our co-agenting partners –to insure that the sale of each property is handled with creativity and tenacity. The team regularly travels to Los Angeles to meet directly with producers and developers of filmed entertainment properties, giving us a direct connection to buyers and decision-makers.
Because we work non-exclusively, we have the ability to approach any studio, production company, actor or agent with your project. Our aim is to find the team that best understands your book and will work the hardest for it. Similarly, our Book Development Division, assists writers and their representatives in developing book projects based on film and television properties.
For information on development of Foundry authors, please contact our offices by phone at: 212.929.5064, or at
