International TV rights broker Digital Rights Group has signed a two-year deal with Los Angeles-based 44 Blue Prods., giving it the first-look on international rights on 44 Blue’s projects. Additionally, a development fund will be created to finance projects.
All shows acquired and developed through the deal will be distributed by London-based DRG’s DRG America.
Founded by husband and wife Rasha and Stephanie Drachkovitch in 1984, 44 Blue makes non-fiction, reality, how-to, lifestyle and action-adventure fare. Recent projects include MSNBC’s “Lockup” and “LA Gang Unit” for A&E.
