We’re incredibly excited to be close to a deal for a television series for Ben H. Winters’ brilliant pre-apocalyptic novel, THE LAST POLICEMAN, first in a projected trilogy. The novel’s premise is that an asteroid will collide with the earth in six months. There is no question that this will happen. Against the backdrop of a world that is coming to an end, a newly minted detective is determined to solve his first case–a murder. The problem is that no one cares.
Our amazing film agent, Shari Smiley of The Smiley Group, is currently in negotiation with Lorenzo di Bonaventura Films. The book’s publisher, Quirk Books, will be a co-producer.
