Wicked Pictures, Marc Dorcel Partner In A Strategic Alliance

PARIS, FranceWicked Pictures, one of the biggest American studios, and Marc Dorcel, the European leader in adult entertainment, have sealed an exclusive agreement allowing the TVOD and SVOD distribution of Wicked's US studio catalogue in most of European countries, as well as the broadcast of its movies on Dorcel TV. Marc Dorcel will therefore provide to all its partners and its TV channel, for the first time in Europe, instant access to Wicked Pictures' best movies.

This agreement with Marc Dorcel allows Wicked Pictures to distribute its productions to more than 18 European countries, 50 networks and TVOD and SVOD platforms, and to consolidate a 10+ year collaboration between the two historic partners. Indeed, Wicked Pictures has been Marc Dorcel's content distributor in the US since 1995.

Marc Dorcel had launched, in partnership with the French operator Free, the first adult 3D VOD offerings. This service, which offers users privileged access to more than 200 exclusive videos especially designed for 3D and produced with the newest recording technologies (3D cameras, side by side, full HD, etc.), is now available from the major TV operators of more than 10 countries around the world, including Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Korea and others.

Since Marc Dorcel’s launch into VOD in 2002 on dorcelvision.com, the network has grown and is now available on more than 50 VOD platforms (cable, ISP, IPTV, etc.) all around Europe. With this distribution deal, Wicked Pictures' reach will therefore extend to the major part of Europe in TVOD, SVOD and PayTV.

Marc Dorcel will distribute Wicked Pictures' products and services in all markets where the French company is present as well as on 14 TVOD, SVOD, IPTV, Cable and Smart TV owned by the company. Customers in Europe can now enjoy Wicked Pictures' movies!

"We are really proud of our productions and being aligned with such a well-respected entity like Marc Dorcel is a win-win for both of our companies," said Steven Vlottes, Vice President-International Sales and Licensing. "We are very excited to further expand the reach of our high quality adult entertainment to the European audience."

"Since their creation, Marc Dorcel's VOD services have been in search of high quality content. We are glad to join forces with one of the most successful American brands and partner with Wicked Pictures with whom we share the same taste of excellence," said Gregory Dorcel, CEO, Marc Dorcel.
