CRAZY COW inks distribution deal with Make Believe Media (Canada)

Friday, November 16th, 2007

CRAZY COW is delighted to announce that it has signed an agreement with Canadian production company Make Believe Media Inc (Lynn Booth) to distribute the crime series “True Pulp Murder” (13 x 30′ / Global-Court TV-Mystery). Each episode of “True Pulp Murder” pairs a homicide investigator with one real life author and our fictional graphic novelist. Together they dissect and bring to audiences an assortment of real life murders and their resolution. Drawn from the case files of the actual cops who solved the mysteries, each episode unravels one macabre mystery in this 13 by 30 series. “True Pulp Murder” marries graphic novel stylings with commentary by crime writers. It allows viewers to see the actual events from the point of view of detectives who worked the case, fiction writers who wrote similar stories and a sexy, film noir-ish narrator. It is one part documentary, one part graphic novel, and one part hard-bitten detective drama.
