By Tony Maglio for The Wrap
Entertainment One signed an exclusive multi-year international distribution deal with AMC and Sundance Channel on [September 5].
In addition to handling all international distribution of original scripted series from the U.S.-based AMC Networks, eOne series will be carried by Sundance Channel Global, the international side of AMC Networks.
eOne is the studio and international distributor of AMC’s “Hell on Wheels” and distribution partner of “The Walking Dead,” along with Fox International Channels.
The first projects under the deal are AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Turn” and Sundance Channel’s “The Red Road.”
“Halt and Catch Fire” is set in the early 1980s and dramatizes the personal computing boom taking place at that time. The series stars Lee Pace (“Lincoln,” “Pushing Daisies”) and Scoot McNairy (“Argo”).
“Turn” is a Revolutionary War spy thriller starring Jamie Bell (“Billy Elliot”).
“The Red Road” revolves around a local cop (Martin Henderson) struggling to keep his family together while policing a Native American community.
