Los Angeles-based Alchemy Television has teamed with Germany’s Tele Munchen to handle worldwide rights outside North America on the upcoming CBS cop drama “Flashpoint.”
Originally developed by Canadian broadcaster CTV and produced by Pink Sky Ent. and Avamar Entertainment, “Flashpoint” turns on a elite squad trained in SWAT tactics, psychology and state-of-the-art weaponry. Series toplines Enrico Colantoni (“Veronica Mars”).
Tele Munchen and Alchemy are launching the 13 episode, one-hour drama at Mip TV.
Alchemy specializes in big-budget miniseries, and “Flashpoint” represents its first step into the series market and its first U.S. network show.
Alchemy’s recently wrapped minis includes “Burn Up,” starring Bradley Whitford; “Diamonds,” with Judy Davis; Sam Neill’s “Iron Road” and Shirley Maclaine’s “Coco Chanel.”
All the thesps except Davis will take part in press conferences Monday at Mip.
Alchemy also runs an unscripted division, the London-based Alchemy Reality.
At Mip, German producer-distributor Tele München is also starting presales for the $20 million mini “Sea Wolf,” based on Jack London’s novel and currently shooting in Canada.
