In-Motion buys global rights to ‘Wheels’

Deal includes worldwide rights for three seasons of 'Pensacola'

BERLIN — German entertainment group In-Motion has acquired world-wide rights to two CBS series, “18 Wheels of Justice” and “Pensacola,” for $8 million.

Company, which co-produced “18 Wheels,” has also secured U.S. rights to the first season of the action series (22 episodes). “18 Wheels” is broadcast on CBS sister cable channel TNN.

Deal also includes worldwide rights for three seasons (66 episodes) of “Pensacola”; In-Motion has already peddled all three seasons of the military series for $3.3 million.

Next season the Frankfurt-based company will be the sole producer of “18 Wheels,” which has also been sold in key international markets. Likewise, the action series’ second and third seasons have already been sold in the U.S.

Hoping to increase sales from global markets, In-Motion has been stocking its own library with internationally aimed fare; company will be producing a further 44 one-hour episodes of “18 Wheels.”

In-Motion execs say company has successfully positioned itself in North America following the premiere of its co-production “Life With Judy Garland — Me and My Shadows” on ABC last month. Miniseries was a ratings winner for the Alphabet web on its first night, reaching some 20 million viewers.
