‘The Cry’ prodco Synchronicity Films & All3Media Int’l strike first-look pact
The Cry producer Synchronicity Films has struck an exclusive first-look deal with distributor All3Media International for all upcoming scripted television projects.
The deal will hand All3’s sales division a first-look option to deficit finance and distribute Synchronicity’s upcoming slate of scripted television projects, while also providing the prodco with access to development financing options.
Synchronicity Films, which was founded and is headed by Claire Mundell, is headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland and recently opened an office in Australia.
Its scripted slate includes adaptations of novels including: Mayflies by Andrew O’Hagan; Heather Morris’ The Tattooist of Auschwitz; Craig Russell’s Lennox series; Shankari Chandran’s Song of the Sun God; and several of The Cry author Helen FitzGerald’s novels, including her latest Ash Mountain.
Mundell said: “This partnership will help supercharge our ambition for growth, enabling us to push our scripted slate forward with confidence in the international marketplace.
“I’ve known Louise and Maartje for forever, and we’re delighted to be finally getting the chance to work together! As a like-minded company with an excellent track record we feel All3 are ideally positioned to help us build stronger relationships with global broadcast partners and help us realise our scripted goals.”
Maartje Horchner, EVP of content at All3Media International, added: “Claire and her team have built a brilliant and well deserved reputation in scripted – and we are thrilled that we will be working together. We are proud to be helping Claire bring her vision for Synchronicity’s next period of growth to fruition.”
