Lionsgate, Fox Sign Latin American TV Output Deal

Lionsgate and Fox Networks Group Latin America have announced a multi-year output agreement through which Lionsgate will supply first-run films for FNG’s pay TV and basic cable channels across Latin America.

The pact also gives the channels access to films in Lionsgate’s library. The deal includes “Divergent” and “Insurgent” — the first two titles in the Divergent series — along with “Philomena” and the Pantelion title “Ladrones,” with Latin American stars Fernando Colunga and Eduardo Yañez.

“We are delighted to have secured this important agreement with our friends at Fox Networks Group Latin America,” said Peter Iacono, Liosngate’s president of international television and digital distribution. “Our aim is always to garner maximum value from each of our titles and this multiple year output deal for pay TV and basic cable with such a major network in Latin America will enable our first-class programming to showcase widely across this important region.”

Richard Rohrbach, senior VP of acquisitions for Fox Networks Group Latin America, said in a statement: “Thanks to much hard work by executives from both companies, the highly successful content from the Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment labels has found a home as part of the portfolio of content offered on Fox Network Groups channels in Latin America. With audiences that continually demand more and better content, Lionsgate will be a great addition to the other programming we currently offer.”

The deal was brokered by Iacono and Maryann Pasante for Lionsgate with Rohrbach.
