The N Teams Up With MarVista Entertainment And Brookwell McNamara Entertainment On A Multi-Series Production & Development Deal

22 Half-Hour Episodes of �Boarding School,� The First Of Three New TV Projects, Slated To Commence Production In Spring 2005

New York, NY, September 21, 2004 � On the heels of the recently announced groundbreaking co-production and distribution agreement between MarVista Entertainment and Brookwell McNamara Entertainment (BME), the two companies announced today that they have teamed up with The N, the nighttime network for tweens and teens, on a new, multi-series production and development deal for the network. The announcement was made today by Michael Jacobs, MarVista's President, Production and Distribution and Sarah Tomassi Lindman, Vice President, Programming and Production, The N.

The N has ordered 22 new half-hour episodes of the original teen drama, Boarding School, the first of the three new television projects for The N. Boarding School is slated to begin production in Spring 2005. Under the agreement, BME (That�s So Raven, Even Stevens and the upcoming feature film, Raise Your Voice starring Hillary Duff) and MarVista will both serve as producers for the new half-hour series with MarVista handling the worldwide distribution. Boarding School is scheduled to premiere Fall 2005 on The N.

�We�re thrilled to be working with MarVista and BME on three new, original projects,� said Lindman. �Their combined experience and expertise will make Boarding School a huge hit with our audience.�

Boarding School is an intense dramatic series that drops in on the world of five passionate girls and one dream: to shred on the waves as world-class professional surfers. Despite their drastically different backgrounds, the amateur surfers develop a closeness as they live, study, surf, and learn what it takes to be women in a male dominated sport.

�Partnering with the multi-talented David Brookwell and Sean McNamara and developing our relationship with a network the caliber of The N, MarVista is once again certain to supply our international buyers with top-rated programs with worldwide appeal,� commented Jacobs. �We are looking forward to the development of a mutually beneficial long-term relationship with both of them.�

�Having a solid co-production and distribution agreement with MarVista makes good sense from a business and creative view point,� said BME President David Brookwell. �Add to that our new association with The N and we have a match-up that most companies would envy.�
