Entertainment One nabs 'Walking Dead'

Toronto-based producer will handle broadcast, digital rights

TORONTO -- Indie producer Entertainment One has inked an international distribution deal for the AMC drama "The Walking Dead" with Fox International Channels.

FIC earlier picked up all international rights for the project outside of North America.

Toronto-based eOne will now handle broadcast TV rights and digital/DVD rights in all international markets, while also selling basic TV and pay TV rights in France, Australia and Scandinavia.

"We're thrilled that FIC has recognized eOne's ability to oversee multi-format, international distribution for this ground-breaking series and we look forward to ensuring that ŒThe Walking Dead' makes an immediate impact with audiences around the globe," Peter Emerson, president of Entertainment One Television International said.

eOne and FIC will jointly launch their sales effort for "The Walking Dead" at MIPCOM.
