SINGAPORE -- Asia's annual television programming market, the Asia Television Forum, opened here Wednesday with a flurry of business, including a deal to bring the ABC hit Lost to viewers in Sri Lanka, according to an announcement by Buena Vista International Television-Asia Pacific. The BVITV arm used the forum to announce also that the Geena Davis starrer Commander in Chief has been licensed to date by six broadcasters in the region, which covers 40 countries. The Sri Lanka deal is with Art Television Broadcasting and includes a wide range of library features, drama series and TV movies. This is BVITV's first multiyear volume agreement with Art TV.
