Endemol takes international rights to Continuum


Endemol has inked a deal for the international rights to the homegrown sci-fi series Continuum.

The deal with the international producer/distributor also includes rights to any future seasons of the series, produced by Vancouver-based Reunion Pictures in association with Shaw Media.

Continuum, which stars Rachel Nichols, Victor Webster and Erik Knudsen, airs on Shaw Media’s Showcase in Canada and on Syfy in the U.S. and U.K.

The one-hour sci-fi drama follows a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time and teams up with a present-day cop to track down escaped convicts from her future.

The series recently began production on its second season, which was greenlit in August.

Endemol senior VP, sales and acquisitions Matt Creasey negotiated the deal with Reunion for the company’s sales arm, Endemol Worldwide Distribution.

Continuum is created by exec producer Simon Barry, with Patrick Williams exec producing and directing. Reunion Pictures Partners Tom Rowe, Lisa Richardson and Matthew O’Connor are exec producers.
