‘Falcon’ flies o’seas

World Brief

Fremantle Intl. Distribution has secured a number of European deals for U.S. teen drama “Falcon Beach” after its debut at the L.A. Screenings.

The one-hour drama, which debuts Sunday on ABC Family, was snapped up by French commercial web M6 and an unnamed terrestrial broadcaster in the U.K. A rep for Channel 4 said it has not picked up the show, meaning the buyer is either the BBC, ITV or Five.
