MGM sells film package to SBS

Studio inks deal with Dutch broadcaster

BERLIN — MGM has inked an exclusive programming deal with SBS Broadcasting’s Dutch free-to-air channels for a slew of films, including “Quantum of Solace,” “Valkyrie” and “Rocky Balboa.”

The pics, along with an assortment of library titles and TV shows, will air on SBS’ TV channels in the Netherlands — NET 5, SBS 6 and Veronica.

The deal was announced today by Rozan Hamaker, SBS’ head of acquisitions, and Gary Marenzi, MGM’s co-prexy of worldwide television.

Part of the Munich-based ProSiebenSat.1 TV group since 2007, the SBS unit was founded by current MGM chairman and CEO Harry Sloan in 1989.

In 2005, Sloan sold SBS to equity firms Permira and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, which took over ProSiebenSat.1 two years later, merging the two when ProSiebenSat.1 took over the SBS assets in 2007.
