Broad Green Pictures Sets Movie Output Deal with Amazon Prime

Broad Green Pictures has set a multi-year movie output deal with Amazon Prime.

The deal will make Amazon Prime the premium TV home of Broad Green’s slate of films, starting with last year’s Robert Redford-Emma Thompson starrer “A Walk in the Woods.”

The deal ensures that Broad Green, which launched in 2014, has a steady pay TV revenue stream in the coming years and helps Amazon fill its pipeline with indie features of a similar style that it is producing through its in-house movie wing.

Some Broad Green titles have already been available on Amazon for streaming on a rental basis. The new output deal makes Broad Green titles part of the basic Amazon Prime monthly service, following theatrical and home entertainment windows. Titles will be available for streaming and download.

“Working with Amazon to share our titles on Prime Video now gives us the ability to strategically promote our films across more platforms, to reach even more viewers,” said Steve Nickerson, president of Home Entertainment at Broad Green Pictures.

Other titles coming to Amazon Prime soon include Sarah Silverman’s “I Smile Back,” “Learning to Drive” and “99 Homes.”

“We know our Prime members are always hungry for great entertainment and that’s what we aim to bring them,” stated Jason Ropell, worldwide head of Motion Pictures for Amazon. “Broad Green are producing critically-acclaimed, smart, and unique films that we know our Prime members will love watching on Prime Video.”
