Ch. 4 International gets rights to HBO documentaries
LONDON -- Channel 4 International, distribution arm of the U.K.'s Channel 4, will distribute HBO documentaries internationally in a deal with HBO Enterprises announced on Wednesday. More than 250 titles from HBO Original Progamming are covered in the deal, which commences March 1 and gives Channel 4 International distribution rights outside the United Kingdom, and North and Latin America. Titles include One Year in the Life of Crime and 4 Little Girls, plus new programs including The Iceman and the Psychiatrist, about a serial killer; Cathouse, about a Nevada brothel; and Unchained Memories: Readings from the Slave Narratives. Paul Sowerbutts, managing director, Channel 4 International, and Charles Schreger, president of international distribution for HBO Enterprises negotiated the deal. No financial details were disclosed. "Channel 4 is one of the best factual distributors worldwide and we are confident they will do a good job with our catalog," Schreger said. Sowerbutts said, "There are fewer and fewer producers worldwide taking the sort of editorial and journalistic risks that HBO does as a matter of course in its program making and we are immensely proud to represent them."
