Munich, 19. Mai 2011. Jessica King’s sex appeal has been working wonders on the French. KING, the hit Showcase series, starring Amy Price-Francis has been sold by Beta Film to France’s private channel M6. It has also been licensed to the Astral Media Quebec specialty channel Series +. With its 21 channels, Astral is the largest provider of English and French language pay and specialty television in Canada. In addition, Beta Film confirms very advanced negotiations in major territories, like Germany, Italy, UK and Spain. “The international market response to KING has been very positive,” states Beta Film’s managing director Eric Welbers.
Bernard Zukerman, co-creator and co-executive producer of the series, commented: “We are very pleased that KING has been embraced by such prominent international broadcasters.“ Greg Spottiswood, co-creator and co-executive producer of KING, notes: “The audience response has been excellent. KING offers a strong cast telling strong stories. It’s a winning combination for audiences. Jessica King is a unique character in the television landscape. She’s a creative thinker who not only celebrates her femininity; she uses it as a disarming investigative tool. Amy Price Francis has brought to life the character's signature combination of humor and emotion in the most remarkable way. We’re delighted that KING translates so well.”

KING is produced by Indian Grove Productions Ltd. for Global / Showcase in association with Beta.
