Cineflix flips Blackstone drama

BlackstoneCineflix Rights has scored a distribution deal for Canadian drama Blackstone.

The deal with rights holder PPI Releasing hands Cineflix sales rights to the 32x60mins show, which LA-based Prairie Dog Film + Television produces for APTN.

The show follows a First Nation reserve community plagued by corruption, violence and injustice.

SBS in Australia and Hulu in the US have already acquired the show, with the latter launching it recently.

“As we increase the number of scripted series that Cineflix Rights distributes, programming like Blackstone make a great addition to our existing catalogue as it’s the type of intense, compelling drama that is proving to be incredibly popular with viewers,” said Chris Bonney, CEO for rights at Cineflix Rights’ parent, Cineflix Media.
