Beta beefs up U.S.-made offerings

Teuton sales co. to handle int'l sales on 'Trojan'

CANNES — German sales company Beta Film is boarding CBS miniseries “The Trojan Horse.” Beta will handle international sales on the title, which is budgeted at $10 million.

“Trojan” is a secret-agent thriller about a White House conspiracy that revolves around a female journalist who uncovers the mystery while tracking down her son’s murderer.

Beta also has signed on to rep Lifetime TV movies “Obsession” and “Last Trimester.” Titles from the femme-skewed network follow a dangerous dance teacher’s trap and a complicated adoption process, respectively.

Pickups are part of a bid by Beta to home in on the ramped up interest in Europe of U.S.-made programming.

“We are delighted to be working with American partners,” said Beta’s Eric Welbers. “Our goal is to step up investments in U.S. product following cooperations with Paramount, Columbia and Hallmark.”

Beta has a long tradition of handling U.S. productions. Its library titles include “JAG,” “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” and the recent HBO co-production “Rome.”
