Rose Marie Vega, Founder and President of RMVistar
RMVistar’s Founder and President, Rose Marie Vega, announced that the company picked up the worldwide rights for all platforms to “Finding Grace” and “Vampyra”, a pair of series formats from noted film/TV screenwriter Barney Cohen. The deal marks the first one between the boutique content distribution company RMVistar and Cohen.
Cohen is best known in Hollywood for his film and TV screenwriting and productions – “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter,” creating the Gemini Award-winning series “Forever Knight” (CBS, USA Network), writing and producing the Showtime movie “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” to launch that series, and more recently the Spanish Civil War feature film “Guernica” (Amazon), co-written with the Spanish screenwriter Carlos Clavijo.
“To have the opportunity to introduce series fueled by Barney’s pithy writing, fully-realized characters and joyful plots to a global audience will be a guilty pleasure for all of us at RMVistar,” Vega commented.
“Having met Rose Marie a few years ago, a new window has opened for me. Ever since 'Guernica' I’ve been looking for someone like Rose Marie Vega to expand my reach worldwide as I’m now prepared and eager to travel and work hand-in-hand in cities around the world,” Cohen added.
The dramedy “Finding Grace” (13x30’) focuses on the life of a millennial stand-up comedian living in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, “Vampyra” (adaptable) is about a reluctant vampire who blogs her life on the dark side.
