Expectation options McGrath memoir

BBC Studios-backed UK prodco Expectation has optioned comedian Njambi McGrath’s latest book, Through the Leopard’s Gaze.

Njambi McGrath

The memoir traces McGrath’s journey from her erratic and disturbing upbringing in Kenya to her outwardly settled London life, while also examining the brutality of colonialism and its long-term effects on the psyche of a nation and its individuals.

The memoir will be adapted into a scripted series produced by Expectation, Peter Fincham and Tim Hincks’ prodco, which is behind BBC dark comedies In My Skin, Guilt and Alma’s Not Normal.

Charlie Leech, producer at Expectation, said: “I was deeply moved, on so many levels, reading Through the Leopard’s Gaze and am now delighted to be in development with Njambi and hopefully bringing her amazing and heartfelt book to a wider television audience.”
