First established as a literary agency in 1896, Sayle Screen has evolved into one of London’s leading and longest standing independent agencies, now representing writers, directors and producers for film, television and theatre. We work alongside Sara Putt Associates the leading UK agency for below-the-line talent.

We have close relationships with the major film and television agents and managers in the U.S.

We also represent dramatic rights in books in conjunction with some of the UK’s foremost book agencies including Greene & Heaton, RCW, and The Sayle Literary Agency.
