Hayley Dickson, vice president of television acquisitions and development, global content at FremantleMedia International said: “With its compelling blend of crime, mystery and its fast-paced portrayal of the modern ‘cyber’ world, Eye Candy is a daring, at times, chilling and timely drama series which we are confident will enthuse viewers around the world.”

FremantleMedia will start the sales push at the NATPE market in Miami later this month.
