HarperImpulse, one of HarperCollins UK’s digital first imprints, has signed a three book deal with screenwriter Roland Moore to bring his BBC series "Land Girls" to the page.
Editor Charlotte Ledger acquired world all language rights from agent Julia Wyatt at Berlin Associates.
The television series was commissioned by the BBC to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two. The storyline followed the "scandalous" lives of four girls in the Women’s Land Army. The series was awarded the title of Best Daytime Programme in the Broadcast Awards and four RTS Awards, including Best Drama. "Land Girls" has recently been made available on Netflix.
Kimberley Young, publisher, said: "For anyone who cheered on the 'Land Girls', these novels get my vote!"
Ledger said: "I am beyond thrilled to be working with Roland, the creative talent who brought the 'Land Girls' to the screen. He has fantastic stories to tell on the page."
