TomKat MeDiA Developing Novels ‘Fateful Harvest’ And ‘The Death And Life Of Aida Hernandez’ For Film

Kat Taylor & Tom Steyer’s TomKat MeDiA has unveiled its slate of social justice-themed projects for 2022. The multi-platform media company has secured rights to Duff Wilson’s eco-thriller Fateful Harvest and Aaron Bobrow-Strain’s award-winning work of narrative non-fiction, The Death and Life of Aida Hernandez, with plans to develop both as feature films.

“As we advocate for more equitable reforms to help close America’s racial, economic and environmental disparities, the stories of TomKat MeDiA will each contribute to a common understanding by shedding comfortable myths in favor of more authentic narratives told and led by previously unheard voices and untapped talent,” said Taylor. “Together, with our partners, we will discover and cultivate new voices, talent and business partners who are equally committed to entertaining and transforming society for the common good.”
