HOLLYWOOD — “Glory Days,” the new series created and exec produced by Kevin Williamson, will be distributed abroad by Germany’s Splendid TV.
Williamson is the talent behind the “Scream” movie franchise and the TV series “Dawson’s Creek.” Splendid TV is a unit of Germany’s Splendid Medien, which specializes in film licensing and is listed on the Neuer Markt stock exchange.
The “Glory Days” deal was inked last week between Splendid and Abandon Entertainment, a New York-based company with creative ties to Miramax TV, the production company behind the show.
Abandon had acquired all foreign distribution rights from Miramax TV several weeks ago and in turn did a deal with Splendid to handle worldwide sales outside of the U.S. for all of Abandon’s TV properties, both produced and acquired.
Debuting on the WB netlet in January, “Glory Days” is the story of a burned-out mystery writer (played by Eddie Cahill of “Friends”), who returns to his hometown of Glory — a breeding ground for eerie events and peculiar inhabitants.
