Italy, Benelux to get Southern Star programming

SYDNEY — Warner Home Video will distrib a slate of Australia’s Southern Star programming in Italy and Benelux territories.

Benelux will get “Love My Way,” Bryan Brown’s drama series “Two Twisted,” Nine’s rural drama “McLeod’s Daughters” and “The Interview,” starring Hugo Weaving.

“McLeod’s” will also get Italo distribution.

Senior exec Kirsten Cargill said the deal proved that local content could compete with Stateside fare in Europe and hoped that the DVD release would match the skeins’ broadcast success.
