CBS expands Telecinco pact

Deal covers 2010-13 movies

CBS Studios Intl. and Spanish broadcaster Telecinco have extended their relationship, inking a pact that will see Telecinco airing CBS feature films and TV skeins released from 2010-2013.

Agreement includes Brendan Fraser-Harrison Ford starrer “Extraordinary Measures,” romantic comedy “The Back-up Plan” (toplining Jennifer Lopez and Alex O’Loughlin), the Vanessa Hudgens teen romance “Beastly” and Dwayne Johnson-Billy Bob Thornton action thriller “Faster.”

The first films will arrive at Telecinco in early 2012.

“This deal turns on a limited but very TV-friendly amount of titles,” said Telecinco head of acquisitions Ghislain Barrois.

During the next two years, Telecinco will choose four CBS TV dramas at the Los Angeles Screenings.

In September, Telecinco announced the acquisition of CBS rookie dramas “Hawaii Five-0,” “The Defenders” and “Blue Bloods.”

Telecinco’s international fiction hits include the “CSI” franchises, “Criminal Minds” and “NCIS: Los Angeles,” also broadcast Stateside by CBS.

The parallels between Telecinco and CBS skeds continue beyond fiction programming. On Sunday, “Big Brother’s” 12th edition kicked off successfully in Spain, notching up a 22.8% share and 3.4 million viewers on Telecinco primetime.

Also, like CBS in the U.S., the Mediaset-controlled network airs the local version of “Survivor.”
