E1 Entertainment has revealed two television deals for Latin America, inked during the L.A. Screenings.
The studio has sold its cop drama The Bridge to broadcaster AXN, which has taken the pay TV rights to the 13-episode series drama that stars Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica). E1 produced the series, which also has homes on CBS and CTV, with 990 Multi Media Entertainment and Jonsworth Productions.
The deals were negotiated by E1’s Val Cabrera.
E1 also closed a number of deals with distributor Leda Films, selling the Latin American TV rights for The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler, an MOW starring Anna Paquin and Marcia Gay Harden. It tells the true story of a woman who helped smuggle children out of the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust.
Leda also picked up the MOW The Deadliest Sea and the Lifetime movie Murder On Her Mind.
