Fremantle, the European audiovisual giant, recently signed an agreement with the New York-based publishing house AWA, Artists, Writers & Artisans.

AWA was founded in 2018 by Jon Miller, Bill Jemas and Axel Alonso with the aim of promoting and protecting the work of artists in the industry.

This agreement will allow AWA’s audiovisual division, AWA Studios, to use Fremantle’s strategic position for production and distribution of its projects.

The size of the investment was not disclosed. This is the second agreement Fremantle has signed with AWA, after the two companies agreed to collaborate on the development of audiovisual projects based on AWA’s catalogue.

The first graphic novel to be developed will be Benjamin Percy’s Devil’s Highway, a thriller set in the United States in which a young woman must find her father’s murderer.

Further information can be found on the AWA and Fremantle websites.
