Devine Signs on Dotted Line9 Apr, 2002 By: Hive News
Thanks to a new three-year deal, content marketing and services company Media Content will handle broadcast and VHS and DVD distribution everywhere but North America for the next 18 films out of the Devine Entertainment Corp. stables.
The agreement guarantees advances on sales for Devine's Composers', Inventors' and Artists' Specials films.
"Media Content will continue selling broadcast and, for the first time, will make [its] video and DVD titles available outside of North America," said Devine president and CEO David Devine.
"This deal marks the first significant expansion of the Media Content distribution division, bringing our experience of international programme sales to a highly respected programme genre," said Len Fertig, chairman of Media Content.
Paris-based Grandview Castle Entertainment will handle Devine in and Summit Properties International, which has 14 offices in southeast Asia, will manage distribution there.
The Toronto-headquartered Devine Entertainment Corp. is a five-time Emmy Award-winning global producer and distributor of children's and family entertainment.
