Craig Russell's Jan Fabel series to be televised

Book2book are reporting that German tv will produce a series of films based on the Jan Fabel series by Craig Russell:
Craig Russell (represented by Julian Friedmann of the Blake Friedmann Agency, London) and The Lisa Filmproduktion GmbH in Vienna have today agreed a deal whereby the series of Jan Fabel novels will be made into feature length television films in German. They will start with Brother Grimm, published in German by Luebbe earlier this year.

The Lisa Filmproduktion GmbH specialises in the production of feature films and TV series. So far they have produced approximately 200 feature films and they are currently producing a series of up to ten TV movies each year (for ARD, ZDF, RTL Television). Apart from its production activities Lisa Filmproduktion holds a library of some 350 titles, available for worldwide licensing.

The novels – three published so far in English (BLOOD EAGLE, BROTHER GRIMM, ETERNAL) – have been licensed to publishers in 21 languages. The UK publisher, Hutchinson (an imprint of Random House) and the German publisher Luebbe have commissioned Russell to write books 4-6 in the series.
