It’s always fun to share good news!
Alumna Alison McMahan PF W’10 has signed with a literary manager. She is now represented by Alexia Melocchi of Little Studio Films. Alison says, “Melocchi and I have signed a one year contract, and she is working hard at getting my three most marketable scripts, Imprinted, Destroying Angel, and Girl in Trunk, into the right hands.” Please join us in congratulating Alison on this fantastic achievement. Kudos, Alison!

In addition, Alison’s production company Homunculus Productions LLC has optioned the poem “The Wander King” from our very own faculty member Ted Deppe. She plans to adapt the poem into a supernatural thriller screenplay that will be retitled Risk Everything. We are very excited about this turn of events and wish Alison the best of luck with this project.
You can watch Ted Deppe reading “The Wanderer King”:
What if Franz Kafka didn’t die, but poured his life into a doll?
Berlin, 1989. A failed writer is possessed by a doll that houses the soul of Franz Kafka; it is up to his wife to free him.
Inspired by the true story of the letters Kafka wrote from a doll to a little girl. Based on the poem The Wanderer King by Theodore Deppe. You can read the full synopsis on the Homunculus Productions blog as well as the announcement about the adaptation.
Again, congratulations to Alison and Ted. We’re thrilled to hear about Alison’s literary manager and about her up coming project Risk Everything.
