‘Red Eagle’ flies worldwide

Imagina sells series, movie to further buyers

MADRID — Imagina International Sales is rolling out foreign licensing deals on masked avenger action adventure tale ”Red Eagle” — both the TV series and the movie spin-off.

”Red Eagle: The Movie,” which is set in 17th-century Madrid, is closing Russia (Volga Film), and has closed South Korea (Sonamu), Australia (Eagle Ent.), U.S. Hispanic pay TV (Viendo Movies) and Latin America TV rights (Pramer).

Pacts add to earlier deals for U.K. (Revolver Films), Germany (Tiberius Film) and Japan (Shochiku).

Released last year, ”Red Eagle: The Movie” grossed a creditable $3.9 million at the Spanish box office.

Meanwhile the original series has broken into the Asian market, selling Korea (CLP Intl.) and Thailand (Sahamongkol Film Intl).

It has also sold to Poland, where it has aired on TVN7, and the Balkans, broadcast by Serbia’s Happy TV.

Skein will also be seen in Romania, Bulgaria and Slovakia.

Asian sales are rare on Spanish fiction, said IIS sales director Geraldine Gonard. One explanation is the Asian martial art sword-play of ”Red Eagle’s” hero, she added.

”Red Eagle,” which is the brainchild of Daniel Ecija at Globomedia, Spain’s foremost TV fiction producer, rates as the most popular TV show of any kind in Spain. Aired by pubcaster RTVE in January, and boasting production values few other series can match, ”Red Eagle’s” final three segs of its fourth season punched ratings between 28% and 30% for audiences of 5.9 million to 6.1 million, proving the three most-watched transmissions of the month.
