Nevision has optioned the rights to M.G. Leonard's trilogy of Beetle children's books (Beetle Boy, Beetle Queen and Battle Of The Beetles) with plans to adapt them as a live-action TV series. The deal was brokered by Kirsty McLachlan at literary agency DGA, who represent Leonard. The trilogy begins with thirteen-year-old Darkus Cuttle’s search for his kidnapped father, leading him to discover a mountain of extraordinary beetles and pitting him against the mad-scientist of the fashion world Lucretia Cutter, an haute-couture villainess with an alarming interest in insects.
