Chlorine Review Still - H 2014

Five new titles picked up at the Sundance fest, including Jay Alaimo's 'Clorine,' will debut worldwide on the international TV network.

Sundance Channel Global will premiere five new Park City acquisitions on its international TV network, with new festival pickups — including Chlorine, Christmas, Again and The Strongest Man — debuting across all the company's international channels.

Sundance Channel also nabbed French-Canadian drama Chorus for its Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern, Iberian and North African networks, as well as for Eastern Europe and Dutch-language Benelux. Another Canadian feature, Sophie Deraspe's The Amina Profile, will go out in France, French-speaking Benelux and Iberia.

Bruce Tuchman, president of AMC Global and Sundance Channel Global, said the move follows exponential growth for the group's branded networks over the past few years, growth he attributed to exclusive first-window programming.
