Jonathan Kellermanâ€™s best-selling Alex Delaware novels will be adapted as a TV series by IDW Entertainment. The franchiseÂ isÂ being developed for a straight-to-series run, with IDW controlling the worldwide rights to this crime procedural.
Launched in 1985 with When the Bough Breaks, the novels follow Alex Delaware, a forensic psychologist who works with the LAPD to assist in solving murder cases. His partner in crime, Milo Sturgis, is a gay homicide detective. The series has been praised by mainstream critics and the LGBT community for creating realistic and developed characters.
â€œWhat sets the Delaware series apart is the meld of page-turning compelling crime stories with authentic psychological insights,â€ Kellerman said.Â â€œThe books illuminate the â€˜whydunitâ€™ without sacrificing the whodunit.â€
Known as Americaâ€™s longest-running contemporary crime series with more thanÂ 80 million books in print globally, every book in the series made the Top 10 on the New York Times best-seller list, most premiering in the Top 5. Jonathanâ€™s latest book, Heartbreak Hotel, currently is rated No. 1 on the list.
Kellerman, David Salzman and Adam Salzman, and Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, will serve as Executive Producers.
â€œThe Delaware series is a true global franchise, and Kellermanâ€™s characters already resonate with audiences around the world,â€ said Ozer, President of IDW Entertainment.
David Salzman added: â€œWhat will make this television series fresh and different is the contrasting character dynamic of Delaware, the sensitive and unconventional outsider, and Sturgis, the kickass cop.â€
