Ion TV has picked up a movie package from Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution that includes such titles as “The Departed” and “Ocean’s Thirteen.”
Pics from the package will begin airing this month and extend through next year. Other titles in the package include “The Matrix Reloaded,” “Heat,” “The Perfect Storm” and “Passenger 57.” Ion has licensed about 70 feature film titles from Warners during the past few years.
In announcing the deal, WBDTD prexy Ken Werner said Ion has “provided a very strong television home for our films.”
