FremantleMedia to launch 'Prehistoric Park' on DVD

MUMBAI: Fremantle Home Entertainment will be handling the worldwide DVD sales and distribution of the TV series, Prehistoric Park.

Scheduled to be unleashed in UK from late summer, the DVD will contain 6 x 48 minute episodes and is fully enhanced with 5.1 Dolby Digital sound to give CD quality audio. The DVD is also packed with mammoth features including a 'Making Of' featurette, which has been produced specifically for this release.

Additional interactive DVD content includes features such as 'Husbandry', which shows the procedures for looking after and caring for prehistoric animals, 'Environments', which details the conditions and surroundings in which the prehistoric animals live and 'Animal Status', which provides information on each of the animals featured in Prehistoric Park.

FremantleMedia senior vice president, home entertainment and archive sales Pete Kalhan said, "By capitalising on what is sure to be an extremely successful broadcast on ITV1, the DVD of Prehistoric Park has very strong potential. The success of previous CGI productions such as Walking with Dinosaurs, which sold 180,000 units in its first four months, shows that consumers are fascinated by this prehistoric era and we are confident that Prehistoric Park will be an equally massive hit."

FHE, which is a part of FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), has also secured home entertainment sales and distribution deals in Australia with MRA Entertainment and Japan with SPO Inc.

Last month, Fremantle International Distribution (FID), also a part of FME, announced a raft of sales with broadcasters from around the globe to license Prehistoric Park. Territories that have been quick to snap up Prehistoric Park are: Denmark (TV2), Finland (Channel 4), Holland (Ned Channel 3), Norway (TV Norge), Portugal (RTP), Spain (La Sexta), Sweden (TV4), Ukraine (STB), Australia (Nine), Malaysia (RTM), Belgium (VTM), Russia (TV Kultura), Indonesia (Trans TV) and New Zealand (TV3).

FremantleMedia Enterprises CEO David Ellender said, "We are extremely pleased with the international sale of Prehistoric Park so far. To have become an internationally sought after property clearly shows Prehistoric Park has succeeded within its key demographic of family entertainment. The programme is set to be a great success for FremantleMedia and Impossible Pictures in the UK, and is sure to capture the imagination of its audiences around the globe."
