Alexandra Monir’s upcoming novel The Final Six, which was acquired by Sony in a pre-emptive deal, continues its wild ride with HarperCollins securing publishing rights to her high-concept YA book.
Final Six imagines a present-day world under a first-of-its-kind coalition between the UN and the international space agencies, with a plot to send a team of six intrepid teenagers to create the first human settlement on Jupiter’s moon Europa. The high-concept hook touches on aspirational and relevant themes of environmentalism, global unity and leadership.
Josh Bratman at Immersive Pictures is attached to produce The Final Six at Sony, and Lauren Abrahams is overseeing for the studio.

Tambor will share “introspective, humorous stories” and how he survived his childhood and his father’s motto, “Don’t celebrate, they’ll take it away from you.”
