BBC Films Options Deborah McKinlay Novel 'That Part Was True'
The U.K. public broadcaster's stand-alone film unit aims to bring the drama about a U.K. divorcee and an American novelist to the big screen.
LONDON – BBC Films, the U.K. public broadcaster's stand-alone filmmaking unit, has optioned the rights to Deborah McKinlay’s novel That Part Was True.
The novel, due to be published in the U.K. later this year by Orion, charts the relationship between a U.K. divorcee and an American novelist through their shared love of food and cooking.
BBC Films chief Christine Langan described McKinlay's work as a "stunning novel."
Said Langan: "Deborah is a wonderful storyteller whose characters leap off the page, their dilemmas subtly touching modern nerves. We're delighted to be bringing her engrossing world to the big screen for the first time."
That Part Was True is McKinley's second novel; The View From Here was published in 2011.
