Shine International and FOX International Channels have struck a global deal for ‘The Bridge’. The deal grants FIC first-window pay broadcast rights across the group’s international footprint, and enters the entities into a co-financing partnership.
The deal was brokered at the script level between Nadine Nohr, CEO of Shine International and FIC’s Global Scripted Programming team. It marks the first international deal for the highly anticipated new drama from Writer/Producers Meredith Stiehm and Elwood Reid. ‘The Bridge’ is set to premiere across FIC’s entertainment channel portfolio of 200 Pay-TV networks to audiences in 120 countries in Latin America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa following the series launch on FX in July 2013.
