Network pacts for Michael Jackson docu
Deal will make the pic available to MTV and its sibling nets in 2011 for a six-year window. It allows for the title to run on multiple MTV Networks channels, including VH1, VH1 Classic and Palladia as well as Viacom-owned BET and its spinoff channel Centric.
“This Is It,” a chronicle of Jackson’s rehearsals for a series of London concerts that were to have begun just weeks before his death in June, has raked in $222.6 million in worldwide B.O. since it bowed globally on Oct. 28.
