Bravo lands eight Col pix

Deal includes 'Joan of Arc,' 'Affair'

NEW YORK — Bravo, which stunned the industry by ponying up $1.2 million an episode for reruns of “The West Wing” earlier this month, has inked a deal for eight theatrical movies from Columbia Pictures in the first network window, including “The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc” and “The End of the Affair.”

It’s extremely rare for Bravo to buy major-studio movies in the first network window, even though none of the titles in the Columbia package were box office winners. Col is charging Bravo a license fee that comes to about 14% of the domestic gross of each of the movies. Studio declined to comment on the deal and Bravo couldn’t be reached.

The other Col titles purchased by Bravo are “Crazy in Alabama,” “I Dreamed of Africa,” “Les Miserables,” “Jakob the Liar,” “Under Suspicion” and “Timecode.”

The earliest available title is “Les Miserables,” which Bravo will start running next month. Bravo gets the seven other titles in 2002.
