NEW YORK and PARIS, April 4 -- Concluding its first major international co-production agreement, Lifetime Networks, comprising the two most popular women's cable networks in the United States, is partnering with TF1 International, the distribution arm of France's number one broadcaster, on a creative and business collaboration that begins with the production and distribution of three original television movies for release in worldwide markets, it was announced today by executives of the two major media companies.
