Curtis Brown Group Ltd

Curtis Brown Group Ltd

We are a London-based literary and talent agency representing best-selling authors, actors, screenwriters, playwrights, directors and TV presenters.


Company Overview

We were founded in 1899 by Albert Curtis Brown, an American newspaper correspondent based in England, who fell into the role of agent almost by accident when a chance social encounter led to him brokering the publication of The Vineyard by John Oliver Hobbes in London’s Pall Mall Magazine. Today we represent many of the world's best-selling and award-winning authors and talent working in the film, television, theatre and radio industries.

Our Clients

Among our writing clients are playwrights, journalists, scientists, activists & humorists writing narrative non-fiction, memoir, political & current affairs, popular science and popular culture non-fiction, as well as novelists writing literary & commercial fiction, women’s fiction, and historical fiction. Other clients include renowned TV, film and stage actors, popular television personalities and a raft of talented screenwriters and directors for film and television.


Our clients include recipients of the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, Galaxy Book Award, Booker Prize, BAFTAs, National Television Awards, RTS Awards and many other prestigious literary and media honours.

We offer agency expertise to book authors, actors, comedians, directors, playwrights, producers and TV presenters. We also handle UK and translation rights for our authors and those represented by our international partners including International Creative Management (ICM) in New York, Gelfman Schneider USA, Curtis Brown Australia and PQ Blackwell.
