Meredith Vieira Productions Partners With Author Solutions to Source New Ideas for Film and TV

Partnership Will Create New Opportunities for Authors to Have Their Books Considered for Film and TV Development (March 28, 2012)

BLOOMINGTON, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/12 -- Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie-book publishing, today announced a partnership with Meredith Vieira Productions (MVP) that will provide authors with greater opportunities to have their books optioned for film and TV show consideration. MVP will work with ASI to identify and review concepts in line with their company's production goals.

"Working with Author Solutions and having access to their catalog of more than 175,000 books provides us an excellent opportunity to source great new ideas and fresh content," said Vieira, who currently heads MVP with producing partner Amy Rapp, and is one of America's favorite TV personalities, best known for her work on "The Today Show," "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" and "The View."

As part of the agreement with ASI, Meredith Vieira Productions will evaluate specific titles for possible option agreements and endorsement by Meredith Vieira. In addition, two authors from select ASI Book-to-Screen PitchFest events will earn the opportunity to deliver their book pitches directly to Vieira via video-conference.

"ASI's ability to provide authors with access to influential entertainment companies like Meredith Vieira Productions is just another reason why we believe it's the best time in history to be an author," said Kevin Weiss, CEO of Author Solutions, Inc. "Helping authors communicate their stories to as large of an audience as possible across all types of media is a primary goal at ASI, and part of what makes us the world leader in indie book publishing."
