Teuton deal for Sony

Project package includes 'Spider-Man,' 'Shield'

COLOGNE — Sony Pictures Television Intl. has sold a package of 80 movies and TV shows to German terrestrial broadcast group ProSiebenSat 1 covering all productions by Sony Pictures Entertainment from 2001 to 2003.

Package includes Revolution Studio’s “Black Hawk Down,” “Spider-Man,” “Men in Black 2” and “I Spy.” It also covers some Teutonic productions licensed through Sony, such as “Anatomie 2.”

TV series include “The Shield” and “The Guardian,” which ProSiebenSat 1 plans to start in the fall. It also snatched new productions “Stephen King’s Kingdom Hospital” and “Joan of Arcadia.”

“Our long-term supply of Hollywood blockbusters is better than ever in our group’s history,” said ProSiebenSat 1 CEO Urs Rohner.

In the past nine months, the group has signed licensing contracts with nearly all U.S. majors.

ProSiebenSat 1, which comprises channels ProSieben, Sat 1, Kabel 1 and news web N24, has suffered badly from a continued ad slump and has lost audience share to the RTL Group.

The Sony deal comes in time to help the group woo advertisers at the TV upfront called Telemesse at the end of July.
