‘Harold & Kumar’ go to Comedy

Cabler also picks up 'Be Kind Rewind'

“Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay” has landed at Comedy Central, which has ponied up $4 million for the exclusive network window to the New Line movie.

As part of the New Line deal, Comedy Central has also bought some runs of “Be Kind Rewind,” picking up the tail end of the network window for a license fee of less than $1 million.

Comedy Central previously secured “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” which gets its ad-supported primetime cable premiere on June 28. When “Guantanamo Bay” becomes available in October 2010, Comedy Central plans to play both movies back to back, ignited by a heavy promo campaign. The network gets all of these movies following their 18-month exclusive pay TV window on HBO, which has an output deal with New Line.

“Guantanamo Bay” is wrapping up its domestic theatrical run, having chalked up $36.1 million in U.S. theaters. Jack Black starrer “Rewind,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, finished its U.S. run with a gross of $11 million.
