Takedown Entertainment Provides Update on Program Development(November 04, 2011)
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/04/11 -- Takedown Entertainment Inc. (www.takedownentertainment.com) (OTCBB: TKDN), the new face of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), is pleased to provide an update on the progress of program development.
As planned, Takedown entered its Production Phase with the completion of taping at SportFight 30, Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 in Portland, Oregon. Content gathered from this event over the course of a four day shoot will go towards creating the Television Pilot and marketing materials for the upcoming season of "Takedown Fights" -- a weekly series featuring the best LIVE MMA Fights from around the world, targeted for launch in Spring 2012.
With content scheduled for sale and distribution to broadcasters and digital media platforms internationally, Takedown Entertainment is on course to reach its distribution goal of 50 countries for the "Takedown Fights" series including major broadcast partners in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Central and South America.
Takedown Fights: The Evolution of MMA
"This is a process to craft mainstream sports entertainment," stated Antony Walter, Chief Programming Officer of Takedown Fight Media. "Takedown was very successful in all the technical areas of the production at SportFight 30 and the quality of our footage is outstanding. We're now refining the final presentation and this is a very important process. Delivering a more compelling experience is key."
Mr. Walter continued, "Takedown will present Mixed Martial Arts to the diehard fan and the casual mainstream viewer in a way that satisfies both. We are elevating this sport to the mainstream worldwide. That's how this sport grows; through broad, mainstream acceptance. That's the goal. MMA is not finished evolving yet and Takedown is playing a vital role in that evolvement."
Takedown Entertainment: The Market
Takedown Entertainment has now signed Letters of Intent with over 50 International Best in Class MMA organizations and is on target to begin closing final agreements in November 2011, acquiring licensing rights to both future live events and historic archive footage. With a clear business model, Takedown is ideally placed to capitalise on the explosion of interest in the world's fastest growing sport.
