Litton Entertainment has bought the TV-syndication rights to 85 movies from the library of the indie distributor Castle Hill and has hired veteran sales exec Marc Brody to take over as executive VP of distribution.
One of Brody’s first tasks is to start finding buyers for the Castle Hill movies.
Brody also takes over station clearance of the reruns of “Baywatch,” which is going back into five-episodes-a-week syndication in the fall, and of Litton’s ongoing weekly half-hour series such as “Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures” and “Jarod Miller’s Exploration.”
Litton clears TV stations not only for TV series and movies but for video news services put together by magazines like Good Housekeeping, Business Week and Consumer Reports.
Brody succeeds Tim Voit, who has ankled Litton after serving as the company’s head of sales for 14 years.
