Our partners

Distribution​

We are a leading distributor of high quality, commercial TV movies and TV series worldwide.

With offices in the US, Canada and Europe, our international sales team distributes 50 movies a year to hundreds of clients around the world – from leading commercial free-to-air networks, to smaller digital channels and global SVOD platforms. Our global reach means we are able to spend time working directly with our broadcast clients in their territories, in addition to attending key industry markets such as MIPCOM, Content London, NATPE East and ATF.

 

Reel One’s volume of content for distribution has more than doubled in the last few years, covering a broad range of genres, including romantic dramas, Christmas movies and thrillers. We distribute our own productions as well as other titles created by renowned producers, from the most recent premiere movies, to  an extensive library of second cycle titles.

Development and Production

We are a leading production company
in North America.

We finance and produce over 50 movies every year, making us one of the leading suppliers of movies to Lifetime and Hallmark in the US. Our growing series development slate, meanwhile, includes high profile projects for both US and European networks, pairing globally renowned IP with top notch writing talent.

Boasting an experienced team of production and development executives in LA, Montreal and Vancouver, we are uniquely positioned in North America, with access to talent and financing in the US, as well as generous tax credits and government incentives, not to mention world class crews, locations and facilities.

 

Our current slate of TV movies includes top-rating Christmas movies, crime thrillers and romantic movies, while series in development include a remake of the award-winning Belgian drama Tygat Chocolat; a high-end adaptation of the Philip K Dick novella Second Variety; and an anthology crime series based on the novels of one the world’s most successful crime thriller writers.

Acquisition

In addition to its own productions, Reel One finances and acquires projects from other leading producers, including LA-based production and management company The Cartel, Concord Films and Stargazer Films.

In 2017, Reel One and The Cartel announced a deal to co-develop 40 new movies over a three year period for their key US and international broadcast clients. As a worldwide content supplier, we are in constant search for fresh, commercial programming. Our current focus is scripted dramatic content for television and ancillary markets.
