TPS, MGM Pact

Turner Program Services has made an agreement with MGM-Pathe Communications Co. to distribute the MGM/UA library of nearly 1,000 films, a Pathe spokesman confirmed. Details are being worked out, but the syndication deal apparently mirrors the recently made TBS and TNT film licensing deal. That pact called for a 10-year exhibition period to begin when the product becomes available.

The TPS agreement apparently covers all available films produced through the end of ’88 as well as some ’89 releases. That includes the first 16 James Bond films – previously licensed to ABC – as well as the Rocky and Pink Panther series.

In addition, TPS will be responsible for barter advertising sales on the MGM/UA series “In The Heat Of The Night.”
