HONEY CHILE

HONEY CHILE

HONEY CHILE has a secret weapon when it comes to securing IP. Head Honey Felicia Pride not only had a career in book publishing before transitioning to entertainment, she also authored several books, including the notable essay collection The Message: 100 Life Lessons from Hip-Hop’s Greatest Songs.

The shared experience of being a published author, along with Felicia’s deep relationships and knowledge of the publishing industry, has proven to give fellow writers the confidence to trust HONEY CHILE with their IP. HONEY CHILE made waves with the recent announcement they’d be adapting the NYT bestselling novel SEVEN DAYS IN JUNE by Tia Williams alongside their partners! This is in addition to having book adaptations set up with BET Studios and CBS Studios, as well as having secured the rights to several other works.

If you want to learn how a young production company has managed to secure invaluable IP, this course is for you.
