MarVista acquires new teen/YA telefilms
L.A.-based MarVista Entertainment has acquired three new television features aimed at teens and young adults including Pop Star, I Kissed a Vampire and Circle of Lies (pictured).
MarVista’s SVP of acquisitions and co-productions, Stephanie Slack, negotiated the deals and the features will be taken to this year’s MIPCOM.
Pop Star, which stars Twilight ‘s Christian Serratos, Soul Surfer‘s Ross Thomas, and Brooke Smith from Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, tells the story of a talented young singer who is promised fame and fortune if she lends her voice to a celebrity with no singing talent.
High School Musical‘s Lucas Grabeel stars in I Kissed A Vampire which focuses on a regular teen who finds himself transforming into a vampire while Circle of Lies starring Hilary Caitens follows the dramatic trials and tribulations of a group of popular high school students.
