ANNAPOLIS, MD—Naval Institute Press is pleased to announce the sale of television rights for Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed by Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille. Rights have been purchased by Lincoln Square Productions – a division of ABC News. “The Assets,” a limited series slated to air in 2014, will be based on the book Circle of Treason. “The Assets” will look inside the true, personal stories of the conclusion of the Cold War as told by the keepers of the nation’s secrets: the CIA. The series will be produced for ABC by Lincoln Square Productions. Morgan Hertzan, Rudy Bednar and Andrew Chapman will serve as executive producers for the series. Circle of Treason has received coverage in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Publishers Weekly, The Baltimore Sun, The London Independent, and countless other publications. Newsweek’s Tina Brown recommended the story for her “Word of Mouth” segment on NPR’s “Morning Edition” and Sandy Grimes was featured on the Fox News Channel for a 35-minute segment of “Fox Files.” Sandra Grimes is a twenty-six year veteran of CIA’s Clandestine Service and spent the majority of her career working against the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. She lives in Northern Virginia. Jeanne Vertefeuille was a CIA officer during the Cold War from 1954-1992 and led the small task force which uncovered CIA mole Aldrich Ames. Jeanne Vertefeuille died a few weeks after publication of Circle of Treason.
