CANNES -- Film and TV industry vet Ken DuBow turned his PorchLight off at this year's MIPCOM to launch new international distribution house Opus, DuBow said Wednesday.

Opus Distribution's first projects at the market include Alyssa Milano and Beau Bridges-starrer "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" and "Prodigy" which has already sold to Viasat in Scandinavia, Eagle in the Middle East, Albrije in Latin America and Fairmead in Africa.

Opus has also kicked off pre-sales on "Locked Away" and "Bus Stop Conspiracy," both of which will be produced by Seven Palms.

DuBow joined PorchLight in 2007 after a run at First Look as evp of Worldwide. "PorchLight was a place the content was first judged to be morally correct and then the question of is it commercial got asked. I am agnostic towards content and focused towards commercial," DuBow said in an interview. He added: "The push will be for product that's commercial, regardless of content." Opus plans to make its first theatrical announcements during the upcoming AFM.
