If the silence continues it is probably due to the fact that we don't know what the question means. Of course if one of us does know then you are in luck. I Googled "JSON Serialization" so I at least now know what JSON is, but serialization???

So serialization is converting some data structure(s) to an ascii stream for transmission / storage. Similar to pickling or marshalling. JSON is a language with representations of dictionaries and lists almost identical to Python's represention of lists and dictionaries. JSON serializations is used e.g. by AJAX. Are we on the same page so far?

Are you looking for a 3rd party module/package that can be used from Python to perform this serialization?

You have an example from http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/serialization/#serialization-formats:

json_serializer = serializers.get_serializer("json")
json_serializer.serialize(queryset, ensure_ascii=False, stream=response)

There's a Python JSON library here that should be what you're looking for: http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/simplejson
