Beta grabs National Lampoon pics

'Bag Boy' is first film under deal

BERLIN — National Lampoon has tapped German international distrib Beta Film to rep its pics across Germany, Italy and Eastern Europe.

The first film under the multi-territory deal will be “National Lampoon’s Bag Boy,” the first pic ever produced and financed in-house by National Lampoon.

Beta Film handles theatrical, home video and broadcast distribution rights in its territories.

“There is strong demand from European audiences for the irreverent humor and comedy for which National Lampoon is known, and Beta is the perfect partner to deliver National Lampoon content to our European fans,” said Tom Daniels, National Lampoon’s president of worldwide distribution.

“National Lampoon’s Bagboy,” “National Lampoon’s Ratko” and “National Lampoon’s 301” are the first features produced and financed in-house by National Lampoon in the company’s 35 plus year history. All three films will be released theatrically through National Lampoon Releasing, although the company is open to broader distribution partnerships with major studios.

National Lampoon recently inked a deal with Comedy Central for first broadcast rights.

Company is looking to release up to 12 titles a year comprised of four original movies and up to eight acquisitions.
