BBC's Freeland headed to Hartswood
LONDON -- BBC head of comedy commissioning Mark Freeland is leaving the U.K. pubcaster to join indie movie and television production banner Hartswood Films, where he will become a senior executive at the family-run company with responsibility to bring in and produce television and movie projects. His new role, which was announced Tuesday, could see Freeland pitching projects from Hartswood to the BBC. In his three-year tenure at the BBC, Freeland commissioned several indie comedy productions for the BBC, including The Keith Barret Show, Nighty Night, The Mighty Boosh, Shirley Ghostman and Hartswood's upcoming Australian co-production Supernova. Hartswood CEO Beryl Vertue described Freeland as having "real editorial flair" for comedy.

New homes for Hallmark in 2 countries

Hallmark Entertainment has switched key broadcast outlets in two major European territories, signing sales deals with Germany's ProSiebenSat.1 and Spain's Antena 3 for Hallmark's 2004-05 slate of upcoming miniseries, Hallmark distribution president Joel Denton said Monday. Hallmark previously had long-term distribution agreements with RTL Television in Germany and Telecinco in Spain. The deals will give ProSiebenSat.1 and Antena 3 exclusive free-TV rights in their respective territories for upcoming Hallmark event miniseries of the 2004-05 season, including Hercules, King Tut, The Poseidon Adventure and Supernova. They mark a new, more aggressive, acquisition policy on the part of the Spanish and German stations after management shuffles that have seen Haim Saban take majority control at ProSiebenSat.1 and Maurizio Carlotti take over the helm as CEO of Antena 3.
