Cineflix Rights, the UK’s largest independent TV content distributor, has signed a major deal with ProSiebenSat.1 which sees the German broadcaster buying multiple titles from Cineflix Productions and third party producers.
Crime and Investigation series make up the bulk of the deal, including some of Cineflix Rights’ most popular and enduring brands such as Cold Blood (Seasons 1-8, 99x60’, Cineflix Productions), Nowhere to Hide (Seasons 1 and 2, 12x60’, Cineflix Productions), Unusual Suspects (Seasons 6-8, 20x60’, LMNO Productions), and Murder Book (Seasons 1 and 2, 23x60’, LMNO Productions).
Alongside these titles is one of the latest crime shows from Cineflix Productions, American Lawmen (8x60’), which travels back in time to America’s violent and lawless past to recount the tales of a few brave citizens who strapped on a badge and gun, and placed their own lives on the line in the fight for justice.
Chris Bonney, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “Germany is a key market for Cineflix Rights with the larger, more established broadcasters looking for more content and launching new channels to counter the growth of emerging OTT players. We’re delighted to be continuing our strong relationship with ProSieben through these latest deals which reflect our ability to provide high quality, multi-season brands that are in-demand with our network partners.”
The deals were closed by Lucinda Gergley-Garner, SVP Sales (Germany and North America) and Canadian Acquisitions.
