Sports & Recreation Video announced in a press release today that company head Drew Warner has been signed by the UK's Millivres Prowler Group (MPG) to produce and direct a series of movies to be released by its Zipper Video company.
"London-based MPG is the United Kingdom's largest gay porn distributor, and I am thrilled to be continuing my relationship with them," Warner stated.
In 2003, Warner, whose titles are distributed in the U.S. by IMD, signed a distribution deal with MPG for the UK release of his Sports and Recreation titles. MPG in turn licensed its first two UK-produced hardcore movies, The White Room and Quicksilver, to Sports & Recreation Video for U.S. distribution through IMD.
Up to four U.S.-filmed titles a year are planned for MPG through Warner's Sports & Recreation Video. Warner will begin work on the first project, MANeuvers 2, this month. It will be released in the UK in the fall.
"After a year-long break from the adult industry to build my television and music producing credits, I feel this is a great opportunity to continue my successes in erotic entertainment without having the day-to-day concerns of running my Sports & Recreation Video label," Warner said. "After five years in the business, receiving several awards and nominations for every video my company ever produced, it was time to move to the next step in my career and Millivres has provided me with that opportunity for which I am thankful."
