Insight Productions and Original Pictures Ink Deal with ABC Family for Broadcast Rights To Drama Series, Falcon Beach

TORONTO, April 27 - Original Pictures and Insight Productions announced today that American broadcaster ABC Family has picked up the Canadian produced primetime drama, Falcon Beach.

The announcement comes on the heels of an earlier announcement from Global Television Network that Falcon Beach will be developed into a 13-part, one-hour series. The two-hour movie pilot aired on Global Television on January 29, 2005. Series production is scheduled to begin this summer, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

"ABC Family owns the holidays and has had great success with our branded programming events," said Tom Zappala, Senior Vice President, Program Acquisitions and Scheduling, ABC Family. "It only makes sense to expand our tentpole events to be bigger than ever, and 'Falcon Beach' will kick off our newest branded holiday 'Sizzlin' Summer' in 2006."

"We're very excited to be part of ABC Family's hot summer of programming," said Executive Producers John Brunton and Kim Todd.

Filmed in the cottage community of Lake Winnipeg, Falcon Beach is about a group of young people summering in the fictional lakeside resort town of Falcon Beach. It's about summer. It's about freedom. It's about young adults trying to define themselves for the life ahead. But it's also about two worlds colliding -- that of the summer cottagers and that of the townies who live and work in Falcon Beach year round.

Produced by Kim Todd, John Murray, Shannon Farr - Created by John Murray & Shannon Farr - Executive Produced by John Brunton, Kim Todd, Barbara Bowlby - Starring Steven Byers, Jennifer Kydd, Devon Weigel, Ephraim Ellis, Eric Johnson, Melissa Elias.

The FALCON BEACH pilot was produced by Insight Production Company Ltd. and Original Pictures Inc. in association with Global Television Network Inc., a CanWest Company, and with the participation of the Canadian Television Fund, Manitoba Film & Sound, CanWest Western Independent Producers Fund, Government of Canada - Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, Government of Manitoba - Manitoba Television Tax Credit and the Government of Ontario - Ontario Film & Television Tax Credit. Distributed internationally by CanWest International Distribution Limited.
