Juno Dawson's YA trilogy optioned for TV by The Lighthouse

Independent production company The Lighthouse has optioned Juno Dawson's YA trilogy. All three books in the trilogy, Clean (2018), Meat Market (2019) and Wonderland (coming 28th May 2020), are published by Hachette Children's Books. 

The Lighthouse acquired global television rights to all three books from Marc Simonsson, the film, television and dramatic rights agent at MMB Creative.

The Lighthouse was launched in autumn 2019 by Hilary Salmon, Radford Neville and Nick Betts. In April 2020 Sky Studios acquired a minority stake.

The Lighthouse team commented: "Juno’s voice is intimate, provocative and insightful whilst dealing with difficult subjects such as addiction and identity. Her novels articulate the complexity of growing up in these peculiar and exciting times and are bursting with unforgettable characters and pin-sharp dialogue. We feel privileged to be working with Juno to bring her novels to the screen."

Dawson added: "I was incredibly impressed by The Lighthouse’s ambitious vision for the world that my young heroines occupy. It’s an epic, opulent version of London ruled by socialites and social climbers on a scale that few young adult shows have attempted before."
