Romantic comedy stars Matthew Lillard and Nora Zehetner

Santa Monica-based indie distributor Moving Pictures Film & TV has inked a number of deals in the run-up to next week's MIPCOM TV trade show including the rom-com "Spooner," which recently sold to Digi Dreams of Germany.

The pic toplines Matthew Lillard and Nora Zehetner and was helmed and co-written by Drake Doremus.
"We have expanded our range and depth of films and television series so extensively over the past few months that we now have choices for virtually every type of broadcast and DVD buyer in the world," said Ted Chalmers, Moving Pictures president of worldwide sales.

In addition to "Spooner," MPF&TV recently made five film deals with Digi Dreams, including rights to the spoof title "Alice in Murderland."

Other deals include P.T. Parkit of Indonesia, for "Dolan's Cadillac," based on a Stephen King short story and starring Christian Slater; and Falcon Films in the MidEast, which took the animated adventure "Lucky Dragon."
