YA Cherub Novels Being Adapted for TV


Komixx Entertainment has optioned the worldwide screen rights to the Cherub young adult book series, written by Robert Muchamore.

Komixx secured the rights to develop all 18 novels for a drama series. The Cherub series follows the undercover missions of a group of teenage secret agents who work for a division of the British Security Service called Cherub. The novels have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and been translated into 25 languages.

Andrew Cole-Bulgin, the group chief creative officer and head of film and TV at Komixx Entertainment, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to take on an exciting and gritty thriller series that has already been breaking taboos for young adult literature and create a dynamic new drama series for this thrill-seeking generation. Cherub stands alone as an internationally successful and globally loved series, and to be able to work with renowned authors such as Robert is testament to how far Komixx has developed as a company over the last few years.”

Muchamore commented: “Over the years I’ve met with many people interested in dramatizing the Cherub series, but the team at Komixx had a unique grasp of the material. I’m confident we can produce a series that will satisfy hardcore fans, and draw a huge new audience to the world of Cherub.”
