Emma Törzs’ YA Novel ‘Ink Blood Sister Scribe’ To Be Adapted As Fantasy Series By Bronwyn Garrity & Gato Grande

EXCLUSIVE: An adaptation of Emma Törzs’ debut fantasy novel Ink Blood Sister Scribe titled Ink has been greenlit by Gato Grande, an Amazon MGM Studios company.

From writer and executive producer Bronwyn Garrity (Accused, Outlander), the fantasy thriller series will follow estranged half-sisters Esther and Joanna, who grew up immersed in magic and raised by a father who dedicated his life to protecting an ancient library of spells. When their paths cross with Nicholas, the world’s last living scribe, they’ll realize that the business of magic is much bigger and more sinister than they ever expected and will find themselves at the center of a global conspiracy to control magic and those born to wield it. A conspiracy that has been perpetuated by members of their own families… and that will destroy them if they don’t destroy it first.

Released in 2023, Ink Blood Sister Scribe was selected as a Good Morning America Book Club Pick in June of that year and was named a New York Times “Notable Book of the Year” and “One of the Best Fantasy Novels of the Year.”

The project will be executive produced by Törzs and Gato Grande CEO Carla Gonzalez Vargas (Wednesday, Luis Miguel: The Series) and produced by Gato Grande VP of Film and TV Development Megan Espinoza.

Ink was one of the most compelling novels released last year, and is the perfect fit for our first series based on American IP,” said Gonzales Vargas. “A global hit, Törsz’ story has been translated to a half dozen languages, and will now be translated to the screen by the incredible Bronwyn Garrity.”

The new series is the first American IP developed by Gato Grande’s growing English-language division, which launched in February. The company recently announced several TV series including the drama Clipperton, based on the best-selling novel, Isle of Passion by Laura Restrepo, the satirical mystery Miami Spice based on Raquel V. Reye’s hit novel Mango, Mambo and Murder, and the comedy Climax an original concept from producer Sergio Sancho and written by Elena Crevello.

Bronwyn is repped by UTA, Kaplan-Perrone and attorney Wendy Kirk. Gato Grande is represented by Artists First.
