There is a sentence in an article in Advanced Studio Classroom that I can't understand , will anyone be kind to help me?
Independent producers typically sell rights to their movies a foreign territory at a time.
Q: should we say Independent producers typically sell rights to their movies to a foreign territory at a time. There seems missing sth in the first sentence, am I right?

The basic structure is:
Producers sell things one country at a time.
So they don't sell worldwide to start with. They sell to one foreign territory, then to another, and then to another.
There is nothing missing but personally I feel the following would be more readily understood:
Independent producers typically sell rights to their movies one foreign territory at a time.
