    Honest worked with ad agency Cossette on the launch of John Grisham's latest thriller, 'Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer', a crime novel aimed at teens. The goal was to introduce the character of Theo Boone in a unique way and give hints to the crime and mystery that he's involved in without giving any of the plot away. We directed and produced three commercials and created a website that delve into Theo's backstory, the criminals he's put away, and clues to new crimes that have been committed. The commercials work to reinforce the name 'Theo Boone', a new character that Grisham has created and one that we'll surely see much more of in the future. The website gives kids (and adults) a chance to discover clues that Theo is looking at and come to their own conclusions about the cases . Drag, flip, listen, and investigate all of the items on the desk to make your own hypothesis. The commercials will be playing on TV and theaters so watch out for "Theooo Booooone".

                Bandwidth captures the two dominant threads of the first decade of the 21st century – greed and terrorism.

                    Damals dachte noch niemand daran, dass John Grisham einmal Amerikas Bestsellerautor wird mit seinen Justizthrillern und damit Millionen verdient. Am 8.Februar 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas geboren, wuchs er zusammen mit seinen vier Geschwistern in einfachen Verhältnissen auf. Sein Vater war Konstrukteur und seine Mutter Hausfrau, deswegen mussten sie für die Aufträge des Vaters oft umziehen. Sein eigentlicher Traum war Baseballspieler zu werden, doch früh erkannte John Grisham sein fehlendes Talent hierfür und begann stattdessen mit dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaft an der Universität von Mississippi. Nachdem sein Jurastudium erfolgreich abgeschlossen war, praktizierte er lange Zeit als Anwalt für Strafverteidigung und Körperverletzung. Als Kandidat der Demokratischen Partei wurde John Grisham 1983 in das Parlament des Staates Mississippi gewählt. “Die Jury”, die er 1988 fertig stellte, ist einer seiner Romane, die ihn zum Durchbruch führten, auch wenn damals zahlreiche Verlage seine Manuskripte ablehnten. Basierend für die Geschichte ist die Vorlage einer seiner Fälle. Schnell kam John Grisham mit seinen weiteren Romanen auf die Plätze der Bestsellerlisten und hat sie seitdem auch nicht mehr verlassen. Das ist ein Grund weswegen er 1991 seinen Beruf und seine politischen Ämter niederlegte, um sich nur noch dem Schreiben zu widmen. Bisher nahm die Erfolgskette auch kein Ende, so veröffentlicht John Grisham jährlich einen neuen Roman. Neben Justizthrillern versuchte John Grisham sich auch an Sachbüchern, Jugendromanen und weiteren Geschichten. Seiner Leidenschaft, dem Baseballspielen, frönt er heute in Form von Unterstützung der Baseballnachwuchsliga nach. Seine Anwesen in Oxford und Charlottesville sind mit Trainingsgeländen ausgestattet, auf denen Kinder und Nachwuchsteams spielen dürfen. Als strenggläubiger Baptist lebt John Grisham mit seiner Frau Renee und den Kindern Ty und Shea zurückgezogen abwechselnd auf der Farm in Oxford oder der Plantage in Charlottesville. Von Medienrummel hält er nicht viel und genießt viel lieber ein Baseballspiel seines Sohnes. John Grisham Bücher feiern die Erfolge durch ihre Qualität der Erzählform wie Stephen King Bücher. [...] Inez Graney scheut keine Mühe, um ihren Sohn zu besuchen. Seit elf Jahren sitzt Raymond im Todestrakt. Seine Brüder, die ihre Mutter stets begleiten, halten Raymond für einen schrägen Vogel. Oft muss Inez zwischen ihren Söhnen vermitteln. So auch diesmal, an diesem besonderen Besuchstag, an dem Raymond Graney hingerichtet wird. [...] John Grisham erzählt Stories, die den Leser ins Herz treffen, und schafft Figuren, die man nie mehr vergisst. Ein Meisterwerk! Diese Sendung und weitere namhafte Autoren sehen Sie auf www.erlesen.tv.
