The true story of how a humble Pakistani scientist turned nuclear spy became single-handedly responsible for arming the world’s “rogue states” – North Korea, Iran, Libya, Pakistan – with nuclear weapons programs; transforming himself into a rich and powerful “Nuclear King Pin” in the process; all while managing to evade capture by the CIA, who in 2003 dubbed him the “most dangerous man in the world”.
This thought-provoking and highly entertaining true-story combines elements of espionage, suspense, high-stakes political drama and complex character arcs. Shining a light on pivotal events that have been overlooked, we want to explore how both sides of a global divide are often driven by the same destructive forces of patriotism and power. We’re keen to find a writer who can navigate this subject matter using a tone that is dramatic, but also playful, witty and fun.
