EEAP continues successful sales activities
In the past weeks, EEAP and A Company have closed on significant film packages with several TV broadcasters.
In Slovakia, a 5-title deal, including Steven Seagal's new action thriller "Ruslan" was confirmed by TV Joy as well as by Markiza.
Poland's pubcaster TVP continues its cooperation with EEAP; it has bought a total of 34 titles, including "Keinohrhasen" by and with Til Schweiger, the adaptation of the bestseller "The Reader", with Kate Winslett and Ralph Fiennes, "Hello Goodbye" with Fanny Ardant and Gerard Depardieu, as well as "Daybreakers", the upcoming vampire thriller with Ethan Hawke.
Also in Poland, Canal+ Polska has confirmed its next package of 15 titles.
TV2 has added 15 first run titles to their output agreement with EEAP, such as the theatrical documentary "Meerkats", the comedy "Zack und Miri Make a Porno" with Seth Rogen, and a package of 13 library titles (e.g. "Sieben Zwerge" and "Raise Your Voice").
In Russia, several deals were stuck, namely with Channel One (including "The Box", "Keinohrhasen"), RTR (including "We Own The Night", "Two Days In Paris"), TV Center (including "Miss Potter" and several reruns), TV3 (including "Peacock" and "Saw 5") and NTV including "Ruslan".
"For the first time, we are also offering a TV series. It is very exciting to have Dean Devlin's "Leverage" in our product range," says Alexander van Dülmen. "The 13-episode action series is a great way to start". The series, which will air on TNT in the US, has already been sold to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russian, Polish Pay TV, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary and Bulgaria.
