M6 scores new Fox output deal

French broadcaster M6 Group has secured a multi-year programming agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.

The deal gives M6 free- and basic rights to Fox TV series such as Touch and a host of feature films and library titles. The shows will broadcast across the M6 suite of channels, which comprise W9, 6Ter, Paris Première, Teva, Série Club and TF6.

Fox and M6 have had a long-standing programming agreement and M6’s head of acquisitions Bernard Majani said: “All channels of the M6 Group are very pleased with this extended partnership with Twentieth Century Fox as this partnership perfectly matches our commitment to bring only high quality programs to our audience.”

“France is a very important territory for us, and M6 has continued to be a strong partner since the days we brought them their first American feature film Speed, and hit television series such as Prison Break,” said Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution’s senior VP, international television, Gérard Grant. “We are committed to continuing to deliver our very best content to French viewers and aim to keep M6 audiences entertained with quality TV series and hit feature films in the years to come.”
