The Fremantle Corporation announced that it has acquired the international distribution rights to “Memphis,” a Tony award-winning Broadway musical with songs written by Bon Jovi’s  keyboardist.  
The two-hour musical spec

The two-hour musical special event, produced by Broadway Worldwide, will be presented to the international marketplace for the first time at MIP-TV 2011 in high definition, Dolby E Surround.

Memphis is the first Broadway musical to be offered in theaters and on television during its initial theatrical run. Inspired by actual events, Memphis is about a white DJ out to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break.
