ATLANTA, Oct. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Premier Exhibitions, Inc. (OTCQB:PRXIQ), a leading provider of museum-quality touring exhibitions around the world ("Premier" or the "Company"), announces a Limited Licensing Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Vancouver-based Infinity Filmed Entertainment Group Ltd. and Partners In Motion Pictures Inc. (the “Partners”). Under the Agreement, the Partners have access to use the Titanic intellectual property for the limited purpose to produce a new television series, Titanic: Stories from the Deep (the “TV Series”).
The Agreement allows the Partners to create pitch materials, from archived images and underwater footage, for solicitation to potential broadcasters and financiers throughout the development phase of the TV Series. Our Partners will be attending various content market expos in Europe and North America over the next six months. The Agreement does not preclude or limit Premier’s current use which includes artifact exhibitions and exploring other new global opportunities to monetize the Titanic artifact collection and its intellectual property.
“This is the chance of a lifetime. We have a unique opportunity to find our way back to the Titanic and explore the lives of those who were on board thanks to the objects they left behind,” said Shel Piercy, President of Infinity Films.
Adds Ron Goetz, Executive Vice President of Partners In Motion: “We expect this series will move into production early in 2017 and are now reviewing potential broadcasters and foreign producers.”
“The story of Titanic is not one story, but many. This collaboration will give untold stories a voice: inspiring future generations and enhancing Titanic’s legacy,” said Daoping Bao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Premier Exhibitions, Inc.
Principal photography on season one of Titanic: Stories from the Deep is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
