CBS teams with TF1, Berlusconi

CBS Entertainment has entered major co-production partnerships with two of Europe’s biggest private broadcasters, TF1 of France and Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi Communications.

The deals cover the development, production and distribution of telefilms and miniseries.

CBS and Reteitalia, Berlusconi’s production division, will jointly employ a consultant, Maura Lynch, to acquire literary properties for development as miniseries and telepix. Lynch will be based at CBS headquarters in New York.

CBS and TF1 will create four series of two-hour movies, each based on a single recurring character, and with a mystery theme. Two of these series are already in development: “The New Mike Hammer” and “Every Crooked Nanny,” about a mother-daughter team who used their housekeeping service as a cover for private investigations.

Under both deals, CBS will take North American distribution rights and the European partner, TF1 or Berlusconi, will handle European sales. They will share the rest of the world.
