NBC's 'Event' is hot international seller
Sold to nearly 200 int'l markets ahead of its Sept. 20 debutLONDON -- NBC's conspiracy thriller "The Event" has sold to almost 200 international markets ahead of its debut on Sept. 20.
Broadcasters in Canada, Africa, the U.K., Australia and the Netherlands are among those to take the show before its air date, a pace which NBC Universal TV distribution boss Belinda Menendez said was "extraordinary."
Broadcasters in a number of territories are working to fast-track their launch dates, she added.
The high-octane thriller follows Sean Walker, played by Jason Ritter, as he investigates the disappearance of his girlfriend and uncovers a global conspiracy involving the newly elected President.
