Premiere coin in two skeins

Feevee taking on 'Rome,' 'Over There'

BERLIN — Teutonic paybox Premiere is beefing up production by boarding the HBO and BBC historical miniseries “Rome” and Steven Bochco’s upcoming skein “Over There,” about the U.S. occupation force in Iraq.

The $100 million “Rome,” which also is backed by Italy’s RAI and Jan Mojto’s EOS Entertainment, is the first project that Premiere has co-financed.

“Rome” is due to air on the paybox at the end of the year. The mini, which focuses on two Roman soldiers and their families, will bow on HBO in September. The 13-episode “Over There” preems July 27 on FX; its German bow has yet to be set.

“Premiere stands for first-class TV entertainment, and ‘Rome’ is the TV event of 2005,” Premiere programming chief Hans Seger said.
