IDW Entertainment is developing Jonathan Kellerman’s best-selling Alex Delaware novels, marking the first time the brand is being adapted as a television series.

The #1 NY Times Best Selling author Jonathan Kellerman has been praised as the master of psychological suspense, and his compelling thriller series, Alex Delaware, has topped charts since 1985. Alex Delaware is America’s longest running contemporary crime series with over 80 million books in print globally. Every book in the series has achieved Top 10 on the New York Times best-seller list, most premiering in the Top 5. Currently, Jonathan’s latest book, Heartbreak Hotel, is rated #1 on the New York Times best-seller list.

The character of Alex Delaware is a forensic psychologist who works with the LAPD to assist in solving murder cases. His partner in crime, Milo Sturgis, is a gay homicide detective. Mainstream critics and the LGBT community have praised the series for creating realistic and developed characters.

The Delaware series is being developed for a straight-to-series run. IDW Entertainment controls the worldwide rights to this crime procedural. Jonathan Kellerman, David Salzman and Adam Salzman, and Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, will serve as Executive Producers.
