Fairy Mom & Me (published in the UK as Mummy Fairy & Me) will be developed as a series of live-action TV movies.

Lambur will collaborate with Kinsella and her agents Lucas Alexander Whitley and UK-based exec producer Helen McAleer on the project.

The development deal was brokered by McAleer as well as Araminta Whitley and Philippa Milnes-Smith for Lucas Alexander Whitley.

The agreement marks the first major announcement from Lambur since the company launched in October 2017.

Fairy Mom & Me tells the story of Ella and her family’s secret that her mother is a fairy. It was released worldwide in the US and Canada by Delacorte this month and is published by Puffin in the UK this February.

A second title is set to follow in the UK in August and in the US and Canada in January 2019. Rights to the first book have also been sold in another nine languages.

Kinsella also wrote the New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller My Not So Perfect Life, published in February 2017. Her books for adults have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 40 languages.
