CBS strikes content deal with Amedia

Michael C Hall in Dexter, which has been picked up as part of the deal

Russian network Amedia TV has acquired exclusive local rights to air content from the US’s CBS Studios International under a multi-year, multi-series licensing agreement.

As part of the deal, Amedia TV, which operates a pay TV channel and an SVoD platform, will license a variety of CBS All Access original programming, including The Twilight Zone and forthcoming duo Why Women Kill and Stephen King’s The Stand.

Amedia TV will also showcase a selection of programming from CBS-owned cablenet Showtime, including current series Black Monday and Kidding, alongside a host of Showtime library content such as Californication, Dexter and House of Lies.

In addition, the agreement covers forthcoming Showtime pair Penny Dreadful: City of Angels and limited series The Loudest Voice, starring Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

The deal also gives Amedia TV exclusive rights to two series from CBS Television Studios’ 2018 slate – A Million Little Things and The CW’s In the Dark – along with a selection of forthcoming CBS-produced series.

The Russian firm recently agreed a similar package deal with UK-based distributor Sky Vision.
