Phone Psychic From Author Solutions' PitchFest Signs With Tagline Pictures

Alyson Mead Inks Deal With Tagline Pictures to Develop Her Dynamic Book, "Searching for Sassy" as a Potential Television Series (June 11, 2012)

BLOOMINGTON, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie book publishing, today announced that author Alyson Mead has signed a deal with Tagline Pictures, the producers behind the hit USA Network television series "PSYCH" with a first-look deal at NBC Universal's Universal Cable Productions, to develop her book, "Searching for Sassy: An L.A. Phone Psychic's Tales of Life, Lust & Love" as a potential television series.

Alyson Mead was originally discovered at Book-to-Screen PitchFest New York, an Author Solutions, Inc. event, where over 150 authors were each given the opportunity to turn their books into pitches for entertainment executives. Mead's "Searching for Sassy" pitch generated interest from four companies, and ultimately she found a home with Tagline Pictures.

"What we love about the novel 'Searching for Sassy' is how the author pulls the curtain back on the fascinating world of a delightfully original and quirky character. It's the perfect foundation for building a great television series, and we look forward to taking it out into the marketplace," said Kelly Kulchak, president of Tagline TV.

"My book is a collection of some of my wildest and most interesting experiences as a single psychic living in the big city," said Mead. "I've always envisioned my life as episodes in a television series and am so happy Tagline Pictures is interested in making that dream a real possibility."


ASI has also announced that Book-to-Screen Pitch Fest will be coming to Los Angeles in July of 2012. Currently PitchFest is available exclusively to ASI and ASI partner imprint authors.
