BBC Unit To Shop ‘Session’


BBC Worldwide has acquired international distribution rights to upcoming Canadian drama The Session, starring Erin Karpluk (of The L Word and Bionic Woman) as Erica Strange, a woman who’s given the opportunity to go back in time and relive moments from her past.

Scheduled for the 2008-2009 season on CBC, The Session is being produced by one of Canada’s leading production houses, Temple Street Productions, whose past shows include Queer as Folk.

This is the first Canadian drama distribution deal for BBC Worldwide, the British Broadcasting Corp.’s main commercial arm.
