FremantleMedia reports big business for 'Falcon Beach' at LA Screenings

Fremantle International Distribution (FID), the distribution arm of global production outfit FremantleMedia, has announced a number of high profile international sales for its latest drama offering 'Falcon Beach', at the LA Screenings.
The bold, fresh one-hour drama has been acquired by M6, France and an announcement is imminent regarding a deal recently concluded with a terrestrial broadcaster in the UK. Broadcasters in Scandinavia are also excited by the prospect of the new programme, with TV2, Denmark; TV4, Sweden; TV Norge (SBS Channel), Norway; Channel 4, Finland; Nederland 3, Netherlands and IBC Iceland’s Sirkus all coming on board.
Falcon Beach, which launched at the LA Screenings ahead of its debut on ABC Family on June 5, (26 x 1 hour, plus 1 x 2 hour pilot) is produced by Insight Productions and Original Pictures, in conjunction with Global Television and ABC Family USA. Described as sexy, edgy and full of energy, the stories of Falcon Beach centre around the lives and loves of the town’s young men and women, as they decide the paths their futures will take.
Commenting on the early success of Falcon Beach David Ellender, CEO FremantleMedia Enterprises, said: “We are thrilled to announce this first big raft of sales for the show, which is sure to be a huge hit when it launches very soon on ABC Family. Broadcasters are recognising the wide appeal of Falcon Beach and those who are getting in early will be rewarded with a stylish, dynamic and highly successful addition to their schedules.”
