I'm interested in purchasing the DVD distribution rights for certain seasons of MadTV, the TV show - Shout Factory previously released Seasons 1-4 and stopped at that point, I would like to explore purchasing the DVD distribution rights from Season 5 onward.
I had previously called a few firms, they generally wanted large retainers before they would start anything at all. I don't want to spend $8,000, for example, just for an attorney's office to call and find out the rights aren't even for sale. So, instead, I would like to go hourly and of course, the first priority would be determining whether these rights are available for purchase.
