Intertainment sells pic slate to Redbus

Brit distrib gets rights to 'Yards,' 'Carter,' 'Art,' 'Shebang'

BERLIN — German licensing group Intertainment announced its third major licensing deal in a number of weeks Friday, bringing its total revenues for sales in Europe in the past two months to some $115 million.

Upstart British distributor Redbus has taken free TV as well as video-on-demand rights to a package of titles including “The Whole Nine Yards,” “Get Carter,” “Art of War” and to Original Voices’ “The Whole Shebang.” The London-based company is developing a platform to offer video-on-demand in the U.K. market.

Intertainment also announced Friday a similar sale of a package of free TV rights to French broadcaster TF1.

Revenue lift

Deal follows recent agreements with Italy’s Mediaset and Spain’s Manga. Revenues will help boost Intertainment’s results this year to about DM290 million ($142 million) up from the $27.5 million in 1999 that was a 92% increase over 1998.

The pact’s titles come from Intertainment’s pan-European output deals with Franchise Pictures and Original Voices. Intertainment also has pan-European theatrical distribution deals in place with both Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox.
