Huge congratulations to Andrea Carter whose crime series (published in the UK by Little, Brown) is to be adapted for television. Zanzibar Films and Hold The Page have partnered with international distributor Kew Media to bring the series to the small screen.

Described as ‘modern day Agatha Christie”, The Inishowen Mysteries are aimed at fans of BroadchurchGrantchester or The Case Histories. The 90-minute episodes are set on the rugged Inishowen Peninsula where the protagonist, Ben (for Benedicta), runs the most northerly legal practice in the country and helps local police sergeant Tom Molloy solve mysteries that the remote community throws up. Filming is due to start in Donegal next summer.
