Carter to be adapted for BBC radio’s ‘Crime Down Under’ season

Fremantle Press has sold radio dramatisation rights to Alan Carter’s first book in the ‘Cato Kwong’ series, Prime Cut, to BBC radio drama in the UK.

The deal will see Carter’s novel adapted into two 44-minute programs as part of BBC Radio Four’s forthcoming ‘Crime Down Under’ season, to be aired in late 2017.

Fremantle CEO and rights manager Jane Fraser told Books+Publishing the deal came about after ‘English language UK rights to two of Alan’s books—Prime Cut and Getting Warmer—were licenced to Michael O’Mara Books in London a number of years ago’.

The full program for BBC Radio Four’s ‘Crime Down Under’ season is yet to be released.
