Devine Entertainment Announces Foreign Broadcast Sale of its Award-Winning Children's Film Library Titles to Duna TV Network in Hungary

    Broadcast Agreement Comes as Devine Expands International Distribution
    Initiatives through Carrere Group of France

    TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Devine Entertainment Corporation (OTCBB:DVNNF),
seeking to capitalize on the burgeoning global demand for high quality film
and television content, has announced a new broadcast agreement with Duna TV,
Hungary's top public broadcaster. The sale is the first foreign broadcast
agreement to be finalized by Devine's international distribution partner
Carrere Group of France.
    The sale includes 19 of Devine Entertainment's critically acclaimed
children's films and franchise titles, including Beethoven Lives Upstairs, The
Composers Specials, The Inventors' Specials and The Artists' Specials.
    The agreement with the Duna TV network is the first sale to result from

Cannes, France. Devine has previously announced strategic initiatives to
capitalize on its proprietary library of film and television content and
franchise titles through sales to territories worldwide.
    "This is the first sale announced from Axel Carrere of the Carrere Group
of Paris following his introduction of our filmed products at the recent
MIPCOM sales convention in Cannes, France," said David Devine, President and
Chief Executive Officer of Devine Entertainment. "Based on our knowledge of
Axel and his sales team, we are anticipating more sales in foreign territories
in the near and midterm time frame."
    Carrere Group - one of the world's leading international distributors of
television and film - is distributing Devine's award-winning 18-film library
of historical family films, including its new prime-time series "Across the
River to Motor City" throughout French-speaking territories, including France,
