20 April 2020

‘We have been busy, as there is quite a lot of action out there. It is really lively and major buyers, like Amazon, Disney and Netflix, are calling and saying "what have you got?" They've had to close down their productions, so are putting everything into development. And, of course subscriptions have spiked, so they have money too...

There is quite a bit of corona-writing going on, of course. Some publishers are being opportunistic, rushing out lockdown-inspired work, but generally agents are looking for something fresh.'
