The drama series, starring Kyra Sedgwick, airs on ABC in the U.S.

Lionsgate has closed multiple territory deals for Ten Days in the Valley, the new drama starring Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer) that airs on ABC in the U.S..

French pay TV group Canal+, Telecom in Italy, MNET in South Africa and Greece's OTE have all nabbed rights to the drama, in which Sedgwick plays an overworked TV producer and single mother whose young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night. Erika Christensen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Emily Kinney co-star in the series, which was created and written by Tassie Cameron (Rookie Blue) and executive produced by Cameron, Sedgwick, Jill Littman, Sherry White, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. Ten Days in the Valley was produced by Skydance Television’s Uncharted label for ABC.

Lionsgate's president of international television and digital distribution, Peter Iacono, announced the deals just ahead of TV trade fare MIPCOM, which kicks off in Cannes next week.

Lionsgate’s high-end drama slate this year includes a new version of coming-of-age classic Little Women, from Call the Midwife creator Heidi Thomas, and the BBC and Starz’s adaptation of the E.M. Forster novel Howards End starring Hayley Atwell and Tracey Ullman and Matthew Macfadyen.
