Jimmy Fallon Lands Two-Book Deal with Grand Central

Grand Central Publishing will team up with  NBC Universal Television Consumer Products Group to publish a tw0-book series by television host Jimmy Fallon.

Entitled Thank You Notes, the trade paperback series will be based on NBC’s  “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” weekly feature–where the host writes funny thank you notes (a recent sketch embedded above). 

Here’s more from the release: “Thank You Notes will address over 150 subjects in need of Fallon’s undying gratitude, and each page will feature one of Fallon’s special notes and a photograph of the recipient. From sweater vests and adult mittens, to his dad, to a light bulb he is too lazy to replace, the book will incorporate many of the subjects that make Fallon’s life a little bit fuller.  Thank You Notes will also include a special Foreword from Fallon.”
