eOne is set to introduce Bitten to international buyers at the upcoming Mipcom market.

The show is produced by No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment and eOne in association with Space and Bell Media, with the participation of Rogers Cable Network Fund and Cogeco Program Development Fund and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit.
