France Télévisions (FTV) has signed a new agreement with the country’ Society of Authors and Composers of Dramatic Works (SACD) after several months of negotiations.

The agreement guarantees the French pubcaster free use of all works of fiction, animation, cinema, live performance or digital works represented by the SACD.

It also guarantees the works’ authors fair remuneration any time they are broadcast on digital channels and platforms owned by FTV.

The pubcaster is set to undergo a major restructure this year that will bring all its audiovisual brands together under a new holding company called France Medias.

Delphine Ernotte Cunci, president and CEO of FTV, said: “We are proud to renew our agreement with the authors of the SACD, thus demonstrating a determined commitment in favour of French creation and the diversity of talents in fiction, animation, cinema and live performance. Public television is the main support in France for the creative works that are enjoying increasing success with all audiences.”

Pascal Rogard, director general of the SACD, added: “This new agreement supports the digital strategy of France Télévisions… while guaranteeing the rights of the authors of works of fiction, animation, cinema, digital creation and live performance, both in the radio and digital world. We welcome this common ambition for French audiovisual creation.”

It emerged last week that Nathalie Darrigrand, the director of programming at FTV, is set to leave after one year in the role and over three decades at the pubcaster.
