Munich, April 1, 2012. High quality, star loaded US TV movies: SevenOne International secures an exclusive multi-year volume distribution deal with Larry Levinson Productions (LLP) for its upcoming production slate. Larry Levinson is one of the leading producers for top quality US television movies and miniseries. Founded in 1993, LLP has produced 200+ top-rated, star-driven made-for-TV dramas, thrillers, mysteries, romantic comedies and family movies for all of the major broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) and many of the leading cable channels (including TNT, Lifetime and Hallmark).
Jens Richter, Managing Director of SevenOne International says “Larry Levinson is a top tier producer. Exclusively distributing his movies is a no-brainer. He is one of the very rare high volume producers of TV movies in the US and has built an amazing international track-record. We are thrilled to work with him and further extend our portfolio of high quality English-language fiction programming.”
LLP’s remarkable track record includes “Streets of Laredo” starring James Garner, Sam Shepard and Sissy Spacek, “Everything That Rises” starring Dennis Quaid, “Frankenstein” starring Donald Sutherland, Julie Delpy & William Hurt, Frederick Forsyth’s “Icon” starring Patrick Swayze, the “Love Come Softly” movie series starring Katherine Heigl and January Jones, “Megastorm” starring James Van Der Beek, Treat Williams, Teri Polo and Luke Perry, and “Honeymoon for One”, starring Nicolette Sheridan. The vast majority of the premiere broadcasts for LLP movies have been the highest rated programs in their time period and for the day – many of these same productions have been the highest rated movie for the week and month, and, on at least eight occasions, have been the channel’s highest rated program of the year.
LLP is the largest supplier of mainstream television movies and miniseries in the world today, producing high-quality, top-rated, star-driven original scripted content. LLP operates a complete vertically-integrated studio operation in Los Angeles, and also produces movies and miniseries internationally, having shot in Canada and other distant locations – from South Africa, India and Thailand to Ireland, Norway, Russia and throughout Eastern Europe.
