Global dvision to co-finance Stephen King drama
By MICHAEL SCHNEIDERMore
Universal Networks Intl., the newly rebranded global channels unit of NBC Universal, has signed on to co-finance the Stephen King drama "Haven."
In the case of "Haven," E1 Entertainment is behind the show -- based on the King novella "The Colorado Kid" -- and will produce 13 episodes (Daily Variety, Sept. 28). Universal has acquired exclusive pay TV rights across the globe except for the U.S., Canada and Scandinavia, where distribution is still being sought.
Deal reps E1's first major pact with Universal Networks Intl.
