Paramount Releasing talhotblond Straight To Download, Setting Paradigm For Their Microbudget Releases – Trailer Included
Posted on Sunday, December 13th, 2009 by Brendon Connelly
Just days after Russ was discussing Paramount’s plans for a series of microbudgeted productions, the news breaks of their next step forward on that route. Their PDE wing – Paramount Digital Entertainment – have snapped up the global non-TV rights to Barbara Schroeder‘s much loved true-crime documentary talhotblond and have scheduled it for release via download on December 13. That’s today! Sneaky. And they sure aren’t hanging around.
PDE’s download partners include iTunes and Amazon, so it won’t be hard to come by this thing and it’s likely you’ll already have an account with one of the vendors. Success will come down to marketing this thing, and how appealing it sounds to audiences. Thankfully, I think it sounds pretty darn appealing.
