Sundance bolsters Web site

Net tries aud 'Seduction'

NEW YORK — The Sundance Channel will try to beef up its Web site by purchasing a 10-part shorts series from Canada under the umbrella title “The Art of Seduction.”

In a first for the network, “Seduction” will premiere simultaneously on sundancechannel.com and wireless through Sundance’s mobile partner Helio, beginning with “Nude Caboose,” directed by Guy Maddin, on Oct. 30.

Sundance Channel also announced that, for season two of its Sunday-at-midnight Asia Extreme showcase, it has bought 13 action movies from production companies in South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Thailand.

In another first, before the new Asia Extreme season kicks off Feb. 4, three of the 13 movies will premiere on Sundance on Demand in November on five big cable systems — Comcast, Time Warner, Mediacom, Brighthouse and Insight — at no extra charge to subscribers.

Lionsgate Films licensed two of the 13 movies to Sundance: “Three Extremes” and “Dumplings.” The 11 others come from Tartan USA, which specializes in action, horror and crime movies from Asia.

“The Art of Seduction” is a co-production of the National Film Board and Marblemedia, presented by Canada’s Chum TV and produced with the financial participation of Sundance Channel, Telefilm Canada, Ontario Media Development Corp. and Ericsson Canada.
