BERLIN — Eastern European Acquisition Pool has inked a slew of programming deals throughout Eastern Europe, including a film package to Hungarian pubcaster Duna TV that includes Michael Moore’s “Sicko” and Brian De Palma’s Iraq occupation drama “Redacted.”
Through an existing output agreement, the Berlin-based EEAP also licensed a number of films to Hungary’s TV2, which has acquired a total of 40 titles this year.
In its first deal with Slovakian commercial web Joy TV, EEAP licensed more than 20 pics, including “The Nanny Diaries” starring Scarlett Johansson and the upcoming Ben Stiller comedy “The Marc Pease Experience” as well as German titles such as Sven Taddicken’s “Emmas Glueck” and Til Schweiger’s upcoming comedy “Keinohrhasen.”
As part of a recently signed output deal with EEAP, Bulgaria’s TV7 took 15 new pics, including “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Halloween” and “Keinohrhasen.”
EEAP’s main shareholder, A Company, also closed separate deals for film bundles with Russia’s TV3, which licensed more than 40 titles, and, as announced at last week’s Mipcom, with Poland’s TVP for more than 30 films.
Company topper Alexander van Duelmen called this year’s Mipcom “one of the most successful markets for EEAP.”
