LOS ANGELES, Nov. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm (CIDM) announced today a content partnership with CineTel Films, unleashing a horde of classic creature features on the Company’s popular digital-first fandom lifestyle network CONtv. CineTel, which is known for their extensive roster of monster movies and disaster epics, will provide the channel with a pulse-pounding roster that features several SyFy Channel Originals, including the 2011 fan-favorite Super Shark.

Directed by prolific cult icon Fred Olen Ray, Super Shark puts a signature spin on the genre with a unique prehistoric beast that rules over land, sea, and even air—leaving a trail of terrified tourists and mauled military jets in its gruesome wake. The film features appearances by television legends John Schneider and Jimmie Walker.
