EEAP signs TV deals for Bulgaria, Hungary

Catalog of Berlin distrib includes 'Babel,' 'Grindhouse'

BERLIN — Eastern European Acquisition Pool has inked distribution deals with Bulgarian TV channel TV7 and Hungary’s TV2.

As part of the volume deal with the Berlin-based distrib, which operates throughout Eastern Europe, TV7 has agreed to purchase a minimum number of films from EEAP per year.

In Bulgaria’s extremely fragmented TV landscape, TV 7 has a 6% market share based on a 80% coverage among cable TV homes.

In Hungary, TV2’s similar new output deal with EEAP represents the continuation of a close partnership between the two companies, said EEAP managing director Alexander van Duelmen.

EEAP’s current catalog includes recent titles such as Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Babel,” Detlev Buck’s Berlin tale “Tough Enough,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Grindhouse” and the upcoming new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

EEAP’s film distribution network extends throughout the Baltic States, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, Russia and all the former Soviet republics.
