Under the agreement, Inception will handle domestic sales and distribution for all Green Apple titles for television and non-theatrical outlets. In addition, Inception will represent Green Apple for on-demand streaming, specifically to Netflix.
“The Green Apple library consists of a wide variety of films which will provide broadcasters a great selection of content,” said Steve Saltman, president of television and digital for Inception Media Group. “This agreement enhances our catalog, but most importantly brings new sales opportunities to Green Apple through our extensive relationships with distribution outlets.”
At the recent NATPE market in Miami, and under the new agreement, Inception sold Green Apple’s Citizen Jane

and Grammy Award-winning artist Meat Loaf
, to Lifetime Movie Network.
“Inception brings us an extremely solid sales and distribution network that will enable us to better exploit our content and reach a much broader audience,” said Tim Warren, president of Green Apple Entertainment. “Their industry relationships, expertise in television and understanding of the marketplace will be great assets to us.”
In addition to distributing its own programming, Inception aggregates third party content and provides sales and distribution services to producers, content management firms, talent agencies and other independent distribution companies in need of a television and digital sales partner.
