David Barron's BeaglePug Ltd and Enriched Media Group acquire TV and screen rights to 'A Treachery of Spies'

UK Production Outfits Beaglepug LTD and Enriched Media Group Nabs TV & Screen Rights To Mcilvanney Winning UK Thriller

‘A Treachery of Spies’

a unique high stakes game of cat and mouse spanning decades.

London-based production outfits BeaglePug Ltd. and Enriched Media Group have secured all TV, film and ancillary rights to the critically acclaimed A TREACHERY OF SPIES, by author Manda Scott from Emily Hayward Whitlock at The Artists Partnership working in association with Robert Caskie at Robert Caskie Ltd. The historical thriller starts with a murder in 1940s WW2 France and unfurls its mysteries into the present day with a brilliant but haunted female detective as the lead.  The partners are currently in active discussions in both the UK and US for the TV rights.

A Treachery of Spies is the second of Scott’s espionage thrillers to feature female Detective Inspector Inès Picaut and will be the first to be adapted. The story spans two time periods as its mysteries develop and has been lauded by Scott’s contemporaries in the trade including Lee Child who said, 'This is a rich vein for fiction, and Scott does it more than justice, with this beautifully imagined, beautifully written, smart, sophisticated - but fiercely suspenseful - thriller.' Author Mick Herron of the acclaimed Slough House series raved, 'The most exciting, involving thriller I've read in an age, and I can't recommend it highly enough.'

A body has been found. The elderly victim’s identity has been cleverly obscured, but one thing is clear: she has been killed in the manner of traitors to the Resistance in World War Two. To find answers in the present, Picaut must look to the past; to 1940s France, a time of sworn allegiances and broken promises, where the men and women of the Resistance fought for survival against Nazi invaders. But, as Picaut soon discovers, there are those in the present whose futures depend on the past remaining buried, and who will kill to keep their secrets safe. Old fashioned espionage might be a thing of the past, but treachery is as dangerous as ever.

The novel, part of a trilogy, was published by Transworld Publishers, a division of Penguin Random House, in 2018 and won the prestigious MCILVANNEY Prize for Best Crime Novel in 2019. A bestseller since publication THE SUNDAY TIMES anointed it their THRILLER OF THE MONTH - ‘Superb…a blend of historical imagination and storytelling verve reminiscent of Robert Harris.’

BeaglePug Ltd. founder and HARRY POTTER producer David Barron said, “Seeing the impact of the crime through the eyes of Inès, an ordinary woman with unique skills, only highlights how extraordinary the events were. I’m thrilled to be adapting this wholly distinctive piece of European IP for the global market.

“During these increasingly challenging and difficult times, we’re more aware than ever of the importance of innovative storytelling”, added Enriched Media Group’ producer and co-founder Mick Southworth. “Manda Scott’s painstaking and thorough research has enabled her to create a gripping, thrill-packed drama with a unique female protagonist solving a crime through two distinct historical periods and takes a close look at the world not dissimilar from our own through the history, the players, the victories and the spoils.”

The ENRICHED MEDIA GROUP principals are Executive Producers and financiers on Paul Schrader's multi award winning FIRST REFORMED, and are currently in post production on two features, A GIFT FROM BOB and POINT OF CHANGE. They previously partnered with David Barron's BeaglePug Ltd. on the recent theatrical release ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Veteran Producer Barron was responsible for 6 of the HARRY POTTER film series, alongside producing major films such as JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT, HAMLET, DISNEY'S CINDERELLA, LEGEND OF TARZAN and most recently MOWGLI for Warner Bros & Netflix and ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA for Momentum in the US.

TREACHERY represents both companies' first foray into long form TV drama after great success in the feature world and the partners are currently in active discussions in both the UK and US with senior production partners.
