KCP Loft, a new Young Adult imprint from award-winning children’s publisher Kids Can Press, the largest Canadian-owned children’s publisher, has optioned the publishing rights to a project from Jennifer Beals and Tom Jacobson (pictured with Jennifer)
‘The Hive’, a gripping thriller and a fascinating piece of social speculative fiction, is a publishing concept by Jennifer and film producer and studio executive Jacobson (Flashdance, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Speed, Proof). Agent Eddie Gamarra of The Gotham Group brokered the deal for world rights, all languages.
“We were thrilled by this unique and action-packed concept from a dynamic and award-winning duo. We are now working with Jennifer and Tom to identify the ideal author to adapt The Hive into a novel.” said Lyons Johnston, president of Kids Can Press.
