We are excited to share the news of our partnership with Blink49 Studios to develop and produce original content for the international marketplace. We entered into this joint venture to give our clients transparency into the adaptation of their work and an ownership stake if the project gets picked up by a buyer. 

The partnership gives Blink49 access to select clients’ work to develop and produce original projects. Blink49 and Transatlantic will serve as co-producers on all projects developed through the deal. Blink49 will serve as the lead studio, with Blink49 and FIFTH SEASON having a first look on projects to come out of the joint venture for international distribution rights.   

“This exciting joint venture creates opportunities for our author and screenwriter clients to have greater ownership in their work and influence over book adaptations, which is increasingly important to the artists we represent. Before we started this conversation, we saw from multiple projects we have in development with Blink49 that John and the team bring vast experience, global perspective, and that secret sauce of hustle and commitment to getting great projects off the ground,” said Samantha Haywood, President & Literary Agent, Transatlantic Agency. “We will always seek out the best creative alignment through our robust network of coagents and production partners in addition to offering this unique avenue for our clients to retain a financial stake in the stories they create. Laura Cameron and I couldn’t be more thrilled about this opportunity for our clients and the Transatlantic Agency.”

“We’re so excited to partner with Samantha Haywood, Laura Cameron and the fabulous team at Transatlantic Agency. They represent some of the best-selling authors and storytellers working in Canada, the US and internationally,” commented John Morayniss, CEO, Blink49 Studios. “By fostering a close-working relationship, we’ll provide Transatlantic clients with significant opportunities and upside to bring their stories to a global television audience.”
