LA/Paris-based producer and distributor Prime Entertainment Group has inked what it is calling a major deal with pay-TV channel Cinémoi for its series Hollywood’s Best Film Directors to be aired in the USA in February.
The 91x26’ series is Prime’s leading ongoing show about the greatest film directors of all time and includes exclusive portraits and interviews of George Lucas, Ridley Scott, M. Night Shyamalan, Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola, Rob Marshall and other emblematic figures. The show has aired on channels such as HBO, beIN, MTV VIACOM, AMC Sundance, Turner, Sky and Sony.
Cinémoi launched in North America in 2012, broadcasting to over 20 million households, as the first network on DirecTV dedicated to film, fashion and lifestyle. In 2016 it then began broadcasting on Verizon/FiOS and Frontier Communications.
“It’s a great satisfaction to have Cinémoi on board,” commented Prime Entertainment Group managing director David Freydt. “They’re a true, high-quality entertainment channel, with unparalleled style and we couldn’t be prouder to fulfil their needs with our extensive cinema-related catalogue.”
