Fox, Mediaset ink Spanish pact

'Terra Nova' among package of skeins, films

MADRID — Fox-distributed films and new TV skeins will air on Mediaset Espana’s bouquet of channels under a multi-year volume deal.

Pact includes TV series “Terra Nova,” produced by Steven Spielberg, FX drama “American Horror History,” “Bones” spinoff “The Finder” and midseason skein “Touch,” with Kiefer Sutherland.

The agreement also covers Fox movies released theatrically in Spain from 2010-2012, such as “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” “Gulliver’s Travels” and “The A-Team.”

The pact gives Mediaset Espana broadcasting rights to up to 50 library film titles.

It’s Mediaset Espana’s biggest TV programming alliance with a U.S. studio since 2003, when a Disney output deal expired.

Mediaset Espana had been reluctant to pact with U.S. studios in the past, but in recent years it has clinched programming deals with NBCUniversal, CBS Paramount and Disney to feed its large number of digital terrestrial TV services, including core channel Telecinco, Cuatro, Factoria de Ficcion, Divinity, La Siete and Boing.

Mediaset Espana’s channels led the Spanish TV market in September with a combined 26% aud share.
