Publisher’s Marketplace has reported that television rights to John Scalzi’s The Collapsing Empire have gone to Working Title Television. The deal was brokered by Scalzi’s literary agent, Ethan Ellenberg and Joel Gotler of IPG. This has capped a week that saw The Collapsing Empire having the best first week sales of Scalzi’s titles, with Scalzi highlighting that he’s “sold more copies of it in a week than some of my novels (including at least one Hugo nominee) sold in their first year.” This is exciting news, and while it’s still obviously early in the process, it means that there may be more space opera coming to television in the near future.
