Cable networks and big media companies aren't the only ones pursuing international distribution.

The indie Web series "Break a Leg" just sold the licensing rights to its show to Fox Italy, marking a big step forward for Web producers looking to graduate to the TV set.

The show will be available on mobile TV channels, on mobile digital TV, online and on-demand in Italy, as I report in this week's edition of the New Media Minute. In this episode, I also take a look at a smart partnership between Fox TV Studios' 15 Gigs and MyDamnChannel.
