ITV Studios America has inked a first-look developmentĀ deal with literary and talent agency Intellectual Artist Management (IAM).

The companies have hired development executive Tony Sabistina to work with ITV’s Brian Segna to identify literary properties in IAM’s catalog that could be developed into either scripted or unscripted TV projects for domestic and international audiences.

“We see this relationship with ITV Studios America as a natural and smart fit in our aggressive growth of our literary and talent business,” said IAM partner and CEO David Guillod in a statement.

Properties IAM has packaged for TV in the past include Amazon’s Bosch and Red Arrow International’s 100 Code.
