MIPTV Spotlight: Pure Flix/Quality Flix


CANNES: The Pure Flix movie Encounter has inspired a new 8×26-minute series of the same name.

“The mysterious tone, similar to The Twilight Zone, with an inspirational message, will resonate around the world,” says Ron Gell, the VP of international sales and distribution at Pure Flix/Quality Flix. The 13×26-minute Pure Flix Comedy All Stars, hosted by Sinbad, Jeff Allen and three-time Emmy Award winner Louie Anderson, is billed as the first family-friendly stand-up comedy series created for TV.

The company is also promoting the film The Case for Christ, which is based on a worldwide best-selling book. The movie, which is being released in U.S. theaters and is available worldwide, follows an atheist reporter who learns that his wife has become born again, and he sets out to prove that Christianity is a cult.

“Our objective is to establish relationships with top distribution companies and broadcasters in all territories,” Gell says.
