Tomorrow takes Sweden’s Crow Girl

Tomorrow Studios, the fledgling US joint venture from ITV Studios and producer Marty Adelstein, has acquired the TV rights to Swedish book trilogy The Crow Girl.

Written by Erik Axl Sund, the pen name of author duo Jerker Eriksson and Håkan Sundquist, The Crow Girl books have sold more than one million units worldwide.

They focus on three women: a detective investigating the murders of abused children; a psychotherapist who specialises in child abuse cases; and a woman she is treating who has suffered childhood trauma.

Tomorrow Studios will produce the series while film and TV producer Michael London (Sideways, Milk, The Magicians) will exec produce via his prodco Groundswell Productions, alongside Tomorrow Studios’ Becky Clements (Last Man Standing) and Adelstein (Prison Break).

Erik Axl Sund will also exec produce with Niclas Salomonsson and Federico Ambrosini of The Salomonsson Agency. Jill Gillett and Sylvie Rabineau of RWSG Literary and lawyer, Keith Fleer, brokered the deal.

Tomorrow Studios was formed by the US arm of ITV Studios, the production division of the UK broadcaster, and Adelstein to create international coproductions and scripted projects in the US.

Last month, the LA-based company hired experienced digital exec Matthew Weinberg to manage and expand its development slate.

The company is behind forthcoming NBC crime drama Aquarius and in October it picked up the TV rights to the 2004 Swedish vampire novel Let The Right One In, which has previously been made into feature films.
