Malofilm Distribution has signed a deal with Showtime Networks Inc. to distribute the cabler’s product in the Canadian video and TV market.

Montreal-based Malofilm, which is one of the country’s leading video distributors, will pick up the pay-TV rights in Canada for certain features that have already been released theatrically, like “A Few Good Men.”

The first release under the new agreement will be “John Carpenter Presents Body Bags,” a three-part horror series, that is set to be released on video by Malofilm in mid-December and will go to pay-TV six months later. Other films included in the deal are “Last Light,” the directing debut from actor Keifer Sutherland, and “They,” starring Patrick Bergin and Vanessa Redgrave.

Malofilm Distribution prexy Yves Dion says the importance of the agreement is that it marks the “start of a relationship with the Showtime people. We may start eventually producing with them.”

Most of the titles will be released in Canada initially on video, before moving to pay and broadcast-TV. Malofilm plans to launch the Showtime product in English and French.

Malofilm holds the French rights to Paramount video product in Canada and has Canadian rights to distribute product from Republic Pictures, Vidmark Entertainment and Turner Home Entertainment.
