Elephant in room at FHE

FHE will handle rights to Gallic company's fare in U.K.

CANNES — Fremantle Home Entertainment, the homevideo arm of the FremantleMedia conglom, has just inked a DVD distribution deal with Paris-based Elephant Films, which will see its catalog expand into new genres.

Pete Kalhan, senior VP of the Fremantle unit, brokered the deal with the French DVD distribution company, which was seeking an ally in Britain to expand its business there.

It is Elephant’s big-budget historical documentaries and Far East action movies that FHE will concentrate its efforts on — handling sales, marketing and distribution, as well as managing digital download rights for the U.K. market.

Key programs within the deal include “Nero,” “Protocols of Zion” and “The Legend of Gingko.” Deal, for which there were no financial details, was put together on the Elephant side by its managing director Jonathan Sayada.
