    This is pretty mind blowing.

    I got a call the other day from a TV production executive about one of my old articles called 101 reasons to stay single (which is funny, because I'm now happily engaged, haha) Apparently, it caught someone's eye and they were impressed enough to option it for $500 for six months so they could have exclusive rights to buy the article and make it into a TV show for another $2500. Holy cow!

    I'm pretty stoked! Thank you, Hubpages! I'm definitely going to be writing more hubs now! Just goes to show, persistence pays off! Keep hubbing, hubbers! smile

      Now, that is seriously cool news.  Congratulations.

      Make sure you get a royalty payment included in the contract so that when it goes global you get to earn more as well!

    Congrats!

    Caution: Negotiate for more money and watch those contracts. They're long & lengthy, as well as containing double messages. Make sure you have someone look at it who knows media law. The entertainment business is ruthless.

    Wow! Congratulations!! I agree with donotfear, it may be time to find an agent, attorney, etc. You will need more $$$ to hire the professionals now. Oh, I am thrilled for you!

    Absolutely brilliant. Just off to read your hub. Does this mean you will have to unpublish it?

    1. Earl S. Wynn profile image86
      Earl S. Wynnposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Nope! That was one of the things I stipulated when I signed the contract-- Both the media company and I agreed that it would be best for everyone involved if I were able to leave the hub up. smile
