Talk Of Revamp In The Works At CBS/Fox Vid

Sources say a major change in the structure of the CBS/Fox Video joint venture is imminent. The sources say it may not simply be the anticipated Fox buyout of CBS’ stake, but a major reconfiguration of the companies’ involvement in homevid.

The modification is likely to reflect 20th Century Fox’ increasing dominance of the once 50-50 partnership, started nine years ago. It’s not clear if the change would mean relocation of personnel from Gotham to LA.

Rumors about the dissolution of CBS/Fox Video have circulated periodically, but they heated up late last year when new negotiations between the parties were revealed.

CBS/Fox toppers George Krieger and Bob DeLellis were unavailable for comment.

Since CBS and Fox launched the joint venture in 1982, details of the contract have remained closely guarded. Both parties share equally in the profits of the venture. They also equally share certain risks, including product acquisitions.

The terms were renegotiated about two years ago to provide Fox with a greater percent of royalties. Other terms and conditions have also been fine-tuned over the years, according to a source.
