Sundance nabs ‘Dead’ in France

AMC horror skein to make Gallic bow in December

Sundance Channel Global has acquired rights to AMC’s post-apocalyptic horror skein “The Walking Dead” for France and French-speaking Belgium from Entertainment One.

Deal reflects Sundance Channel Global’s “commitment to strengthen and expand its original programming with scripted series that have a cinematic-quality and a creative slant,” said Harold Gronenthal, senior VP and general manager of parent company Rainbow Media Global, at Cannes’ Mip TV on Monday.

“With the depth of storytelling and global appeal, ‘The Walking Dead’ gives us the opportunity to raise the bar significantly within this popular genre.”

The show will on Sundance in France and French-speaking Belgium in December.

It has aired on Orange Cinema Series in Gaul since March.

Sundance Channel Global has just announced its launch in Spain, its ninth overseas market, and it rolled out AMC’s “Mad Men” in Gaul in February.

“While we’re trying to figure out the best way to approach local markets, we’re being careful not to undermine the core of Sundance Channel’s brand,” Gronenthal said.
