Vox gets $178 mil infusion

Revamp focus on drama

BERLIN — Commercial web Vox will invest $178 million in new fare this year.

Some $118 million has been slated for mostly U.S. movies and series, including the pics “Casino,” “Species” and “True Romance.” The remainder will go toward inhouse and contracted productions.

The broadcaster, which is controlled by CLT-Ufa, Canal Plus and News Corp., has been making some drastic changes in its spring lineup: Low-rated talkshows, animal docus and its travel magazine — all inhouse productions — are being dumped in favor of drama series.

Vox’s new managing director, Anke Schaeferkordt, said Vox will reach its break-even point by next year.
