CRAZY COW and EYEWORKS announced today that they have signed an agreement under which CRAZY COW will have the worldwide distribution rights for the new Belgian police series “MPU -Missing Persons Unit” (original title = “Vermist”). CRAZY COW was already the European distributor of the series and as part of the extended agreement, CRAZY COW will represent “MPU” worldwide, allowing broadcasters to buy the original series or to license the scripted format for local adaptation (with EYEWORKS keeping the rights on the format for their production companies in Germany, Spain, the US, the UK, New-Zealand, Australia, Sweden and Chile).
“MPU” is a police series about five members of the Missings Persons Task Force investigating mysterious disappearances. EYEWORKS is first producing a feature film (theatrical release on October 31th) and afterwards a series of 9 episodes, that will be broadcast on VT4 in 2008. “MPU” is directed by the famous director Jan Verheyen, written by top writers Bas Adriaensen and Philippe de Shepper (with the very well known American writer/producer Matt Witten as Script Consultant) and produced by EYEWORKS (Jan Huyse) and VT4.
CRAZY COW is excited to be working with EYEWORKS and VT4 on the international success of “MPU -Missing Persons Unit”.
