Expectation options Njambi McGrath’s ‘Through the Leopard’s Gaze’

Njambi McGrath

UK-based producer Expectation has optioned comedian Njambi McGrath’s book Through the Leopard’s Gaze.

Rights have been acquired from Emily Sweet Associates, with the “raw, powerful memoir” tracing the author’s journey from her erratic and disturbing upbringing in Kenya to her outwardly settled London life.

The book also explores the brutality of colonialism and its devastating long-term effects on the psyche of a nation and its individuals.

The deal is the latest to be struck under creative director Nerys Evans and joins Expectation’s scripted productions including 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.”

McGrath added: “I am very excited, humbled and grateful for the opportunity to be working with Expectation. From our earliest conversations, their vision and enthusiasm for retelling my story was apparent, and I really look forward to bringing this project to life.”
