EXCLUSIVE: The feature film financing, international sales and production company made the announcement on Thursday (11) and will kick off with Emmett/Furla’s Dolph Lundgren vehicle Rescue 3.
Aldamisa will co-sell the series with Sierra/Engine and is currently developing other series internally and co-producing with established TV producers.
Aldamisa International’s president of international sales and acquisitions Nadine de Barros (pictured) will take charge of the new business and has brought on consultant Tannaz Anisi.
De Barros previously handled sales on TV series such as Leverage, True Justice and SyFy’s Triangle.
“I’m thrilled to be getting back into the TV business,” she said. “This is a rapidly growing market and we are committed to bringing two to three high-concept, action-driven series per year, with marquee names that play well both domestically and internationally.”
Rescue 3 is about an elite southern Californian multi-agency task force and each episode will centre on action-packed rescue missions involving the Los Angeles Lifeguard, firefighter and Coast Guard agencies.
Lundgren will play Captain John Mathews, a reluctant hero and career firefighter and lifeguard who leads the unit.
Gregory J Bonann serves as executive producer on Rescue 3, which he created with Tai Collins. Jim and John Thomas will write alongside Collins. Tribune Broadcasting will carry the series on its primetime US stations in autumn 2013.
