Vancouver, British Columbia, September 12, 2013 - Network Entertainment Inc. ("Network"), a subsidiary of Network Media Group Inc. (TSX-V: NTE), is pleased to announce an agreement with the Estate of Chris Farley under which Network will develop and produce a feature documentary on the life and legacy of legendary funny man Chris Farley. Before his untimely death at only 33 years of age, Farley left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry through his groundbreaking work on television in both Second City and Saturday Night Live, as well as a thriving feature film career, where he was known for a uniquely bold and energetic comedic style that cemented him as a key player in a movement that evolved and redefined the comedic genre. The film will follow in the tradition of Network's award winning documentaries on iconic individuals, including Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen.

"The world has yet to hear the full story about our beloved brother and son," said Kevin Farley, one of Chris' brothers, "and we look forward to working with the team at Network to bring Chris' inspiring, funny and tragic story to his many fans, as well as introducing him to a whole new generation of comedy fans."

"In his short life, Chris Farley was able to create a family of characters that have endeared him to comedy fans throughout the world," adds Network CEO Derik Murray, "We very much look forward to working with Kevin and the rest of the Farley family to recount Chris' life and work, and the impact he had on all those around him, in an authentic, moving, and of course very funny, way."
