Sony sets deal with ProSiebenSat.1

Duo pact for high-profile titles

BERLIN — Sony Pictures Intl. has signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Munich-based TV giant ProSiebenSat.1 for high-profile titles including “Terminator Salvation,” “Angels and Demons” and “Spider-Man 4.”

The pact, an extension of Sony’s output deal, guarantees ProSiebenSat.1 German TV rights to more than 20 new productions a year.

Also included in the agreement are Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s “Tintin” and Roland Emmerich’s “2012” as well as rights to both new and library series and TV movies.

Deal, announced Monday, was negotiated by Ruediger Boess, ProSiebenSat.1’s senior VP of group programming acquisitions, and Kerstin Guehne, VP Sony Pictures Television.

Despite a $162 million net loss last year due to a massive goodwill writedown on its pan-European SBS broadcasting unit, ProSiebenSat.1 has remained committed to U.S. programming.

The broadcaster recently extended its output deal with Paramount Pictures, acquiring the upcoming “Star Trek,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “The Watchmen.”

ProSiebenSat.1 has long-term agreements with nearly all major Hollywood studios and a number of high-profile producers, including CBS, Disney, Warner, MGM, Lucasfilm, DreamWorks and local companies Constantin, Tobisfilm and Kinowelt.
