LONDON — Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Discovery Communications have inked a multi-year physical home entertainment distribution pact for Discovery’s catalog and future release slate. Beginning this fall, SPHE will distribute Discovery content on physical formats for the home entertainment marketplace throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Discovery’s upcoming release slate includes “Racing Extinction,” a politically-charged documentary from the Oscar-winning director of “The Cove,” Louie Psihoyos, as well as “Bear Grylls: Breaking Point,” in which the survival expert takes ordinary people on a journey to face their fears, and “Manhunt,” which pits former Navy SEAL Joel Lambert against some of the world’s most-experienced hunting and tracking units.

Additional releases will include returning franchises such as “Through the Wormhole,” “Deadliest Catch” and “How the Universe Works.”

“We look forward to leveraging our strong distribution channels throughout the EMEA for Discovery’s distinct slate of world-class product,” said Man Jit Singh, president, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
