Spain’s pubcaster RTVE has extended its programming deal with Warner Bros. Intl. TV by inking a three-year agreement that includes broadcast rights to a number of top movies, series and animation projects.
Pact includes “The Matrix,” “Three Kings,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Analyze This” as well as renewals on series such as “ER” and new product such as “The West Wing” and the animated “Powder Puff Girls.”
Deal came to light last week in Madrid (Daily Variety, March 6). The Hollywood major’s Spain and Portugal managing director Jose Abad and RTVE’s director general Pio Cabanillas signed the agreement.
“I am pleased that we are extending our longstanding relationship with RTVE,” WBIT president Jeffrey Schlesinger said. “Our product has thrived on their networks for many years, and I hope that we can continue the same success for years to come.”
