L.A. Screenings Spotlight: Sonar Entertainment


Based on the book penned by Stephen King, Mr. Mercedes is a crime drama that is being presented by Sonar Entertainment in Los Angeles.

“We look forward to introducing the highly anticipated television adaptation of Mr. Mercedes to buyers representing platforms from around the globe,” says David Ellender, the company’s president of global distribution and co-productions.

Sonar will also be showcasing the second season of the fantasy series The Shannara Chronicles, as well as the Pierce Brosnan-led period drama The Son, which is currently airing on AMC in the U.S.

“These series are based on best-selling international novels that have received critical acclaim and that deal with universal themes of family, power, land and coming-of-age, while also featuring film-caliber talent both in front of and behind the camera,” says Ellender.

He adds: “It’s Sonar Entertainment’s first L.A. Screenings, and we are building a strong portfolio of quality series.”
