This has been one very exciting week here at Cineplex Entertainment!
Announcing the commercial television broadcast debut of The Journeys!
First off we would like to announce that ‘It’s official’! Cineplex Entertainment has made Hollywood history this week by signing the formal agreement to make to leap from web series to commercial television broadcast! All of our web series, music videos and short films will be airing on commercial television here in the local Los Angeles TV viewing area.
Starting August 4th you’ll be seeing the first commercial television broadcast of The Journeys episode 1 of Trilogy 1 starring Angelica Montesano on KXLA TV and repeating on KVMD TV on August 5th. These two stations are called a ‘must carry’ station, meaning that no matter what cable or satellite service you have in your home, you’ll be able to view our programming. Check your local listings for channel number and time.
This is the first time that a web series production company has taken a series and transitioned it to commercial television with no outside investors or support. This was all done ‘in house’. We would like to thank John King, CFO of Cineplex Entertainment for taking on this project and making the dreams of all our cast members become reality. Cineplex Entertainment has undergone a tremendous amount of changes, equipment upgrades, software upgrades, corporate restructuring and not to mention mountains of legal work into the early morning hours to make all this happen. We are very grateful for his dedication, loyalty and commitment to Cineplex Entertainment.
