PPI RELEASING CELEBRATES ITS 1OTH ANNIVERSARY AT NATPE 2014
VENICE BEACH, CA - PPI Releasing, LLC and producing partner, Program Partners celebrate their 10th anniversary as company founders Ritch Colbert and Josh Raphaelson head to Miami for the annual NATPE conference. Since its inception, PPI has consistently delivered high-quality, well-crafted scripted and unscripted fare to broadcast, cable and emerging platforms and their 2014 slate is one of its strongest yet.
Including its 2014 offerings, PPI has delivered more than 20 series to broadcast, cable and digital partners over its 10-year lifespan, generating nearly $250M in sales. Known for its high-quality scripted content, PPI has introduced more hour-long dramas from Canada to broadcast syndication than any other company in history, including acclaimed series, “DaVinci’s Inquest”, now in its 8th season, as well as “Cold Squad”, “ReGenesis” and “Stone Undercover”. “Sanctuary”, the scripted SyFy network drama from Tricon, debuted this past fall in 80% of USHH including flagship, WABC-TV, New York.
For fall 2014, PPI recently announced the acquisition of the CTV daytime hit panel talk-show, “The Social”, available for live or day-and-date broadcast. Best described as "The View" meets "Live," the new series features an appealing, diverse cast that's not afraid to mix it up, on anything from parenting dos and don'ts to the latest dish on the Kardashians! The company is currently exploring both broadcast and cable partners for the series and will announce clearances following NATPE.
Also, returning this year will be “Sanctuary”, staring Amanda Tapping, as well as “Steven and Chris” on the Live Well Network.
At NATPE the company will be reachable at the Fontainebleau Hotel on the 20th floor of Tresor Tower, Suite 2-2014, or by calling (323) 850-5858.
