BRAIN POWER STUDIO AND HARLEQUIN STRENGTHEN IN NEW FILM VENTURE

brain powerGlobal media company Brain Power Studio has signed a new agreement with Harlequin, a leading international publisher, which will allow Brain Power Studio to ramp up its output for the Harlequin Film Collection. To date, eight films have been produced under the existing partnership, but formalizing the new venture will enable Harlequin to raise its equity stake in the films and give Brain Power Studio further access to the collection and increase the number of films it produces each year.

The collection includes original, heartwarming and inspiring romantic movies adapted from the voluminous catalogue of Harlequin, which currently releases over 100 books a month in 34 languages.

The eight films already produced under this successful partnership include: A Very Country Christmas; Home Town Holiday; Christmas With A Prince; After the Storm, My Perfect Romance, Christmas with A View, Christmas Wedding Planner and A Very Country Wedding. Distribution arm, Brain Power Studio Rights, represents the film collection worldwide.

“We are excited to fortify this partnership that has been very prolific since 2017. Working ground floor with the creative team at Harlequin in choosing the books and shaping the adaptations, has been a dream. We look forward to further exploring Harlequin’s wide and varied imprints and bringing the works of their very talented authors to life,” said Executive Producer and Founder of Brain Power Studio, Beth Stevenson.

Brent Lewis, EVP Harlequin, commented, “Harlequin is thrilled to be elevating our relationship with Brain Power Studio, bringing our authors’ stories to film and delighting our readers. Brain Power has been incredible to work with, and I’m looking forward to expanding our relationship as we develop more films for fans to enjoy.”

Broadcasters that already air the much-loved Harlequin movies (starring renowned actors including Vivica A. Fox, Joey Fatone, Jodie Sweetin, Patrick Duffy, Lauren Holly, Morgan Fairchild and Kelly Rutherford) include UPTV, Netflix, NBCUniversal, Channel 5, Super Channel, M6 and RTBF.
