MySpaceTV inks international distribution deal

ShineReveille International will offer MySpace shows, such as Quarterlife and Roommates to broadcasters across the globe.

The MySpaceTV show 'Quarterlife' may be going international

MySpace is a social-networking site that behaves increasingly like an entertainment conglomerate.

MySpace, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., is expected to announce Thursday morning that it has struck a deal to distribute the Web video shows it created for MySpace users overseas.

ShineReveille International, an independent production company, will offer shows produced by MySpaceTV, such as Special Delivery and Roommates, to traditional media outlets across the globe.

MySpace will retain U.S. and worldwide Internet rights to the content. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. This year, MySpace's Quarterlife, produced by Marshall Herskovitz-Edward Zwick, was the first Internet series to be picked up by a TV network.

The series was canceled after only one episode.

Last week, MySpace made its presence felt in the music industry by announcing it would launch a one-stop-shop music site that is expected to compete with iTunes.
