ABC, USA split ‘Unbreakable’

Webs will also share 'Coyote Ugly,' 'Mission to Mars'

HOLLYWOOD — Disney’s Buena Vista TV will harvest more than $30 million from ABC and cable’s USA Network in a shared-window deal for the hit movie “Unbreakable.”

The Bruce Willis starrer is the standout title in a complicated transaction among Buena Vista, its sister company ABC, and USA involving eight titles.

In the deal, ABC and USA will also share “Coyote Ugly” and “Mission to Mars,” while ABC gets exclusive rights to the Freddie Prinze Jr. comedy “Boys & Girls” and USA winds up with sole rights — most of them for four years — to “Legend of Drunken Master,” “Duets,” “Highlander: Endgame” and the forthcoming sci-fi thriller “Impostor,” with Gary Sinise.
