Toronto, Canada-based 9 Story Entertainment has signed new international broadcast and DVD deals for its live-action movie Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars.
Harriet, which debuted in 2010 on Disney Channel in the US and rolled out on all international Disney Channels throughout the year, has been sold to NRJ 12 (France), TV Globo (Brazil), Super Ecran (Quebec) and VRAK (Quebec). DVD rights have been sold to Madman (Australia).
The deals follow on the heels of last month’s announcement granting the DVD distribution rights to The Walt Disney Company for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Additional DVD distribution deals include Vivendi Entertainment for the US and eOne Entertainment for Canada.
Loosely based on the books by Louise Fitzhugh, the movie is a contemporary twist on the titular character, Harriet “The Spy” Welsch, played by Jennifer Stone (Wizards of Waverly Place), who vies to become the official blogger of her high school class.
