Thunderbird acquires Continuum producer Reunion

Canadian producer Thunderbird Films has acquired compatriot Reunion Pictures for an undisclosed sum.

Miniseries and feature film prodco Reunion formed in 2004 under the leadership of principals Matthew O’Connor, Lisa Richardson and Tom Rowe, who will all remain at the company following the deal, which Thunderbird confirmed last night. Reunion will also keep its branding and produce separately from Thunderbird.

Reunion’s current series, sci-fi/cop hybrid Continuum broadcasts on Showcase in Canada and Syfy in the US, with a second season in the works.

The news, first reported overnight in the US, comes after Vancouver-based Thunderbird formed a joint venture TV studio with Lionsgate Entertainment, Sea to Sky Entertainment, in March 2012.
