Endeavor Content has sold multiple world-wide territories for Element Pictures’hit series Normal People, which premiered on BBC Three; April 26th, BBC One; April 27th, RTE One; April 28th, and on Hulu; April 29th.

The drama is produced by Oscar and BAFTA award-winning production company, Element Pictures and based on Sally Rooney’s New York Times best-selling novel. It tracks the tender, but complicated, relationship of Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell (Paul Mescal) from the end of their school days in a small-town west of Ireland to their undergraduate years at Trinity College.

Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe, executive producers of Normal People and co-founders of Element Pictures said; “The response from audiences in the UK, Ireland, and the US to Normal People has been overwhelmingly positive. We are delighted that audiences around the world will now have the opportunity to see the show for themselves and we are grateful to Endeavor Content for helping put together such a strong line-up of international partners to launch Normal People into the wider world.”

“Normal People is a magical combination of incredible storytelling, talented acting, best in class production, and intimate and thoughtful direction.  It’s an absolute gem and adored by so many fans around the world,” Prentiss Fraser, EVP, International Television Sales, Endeavor Content, said in announcing the sales.  “Bringing premium work to the global audience is what Endeavor Content is all about and I’m so thrilled we’ve been able to do just that.”

Adapted by Sally Rooney alongside writers Alice Birch and Mark O’Rowe, Normal People is a 12-episode 30-minute drama series. Normal People is an Element Pictures production (The Favorite, Room, The Lobster, Dublin Murders) for Hulu and BBC Three. The series is executive produced by Ed Guiney (The Favorite, Room, The Lobster, Dublin Murders), Andrew Lowe (The Favorite, Room, The Lobster), Emma Norton (Rosie, A Date for Mad Mary), and Anna Ferguson (No Offense, Prisoners’ Wives) for Element Pictures.
