CBSSI & RTL in Exclusive Content Pact for Belgium


CBS Studios International (CBSSI) and RTL in Belgium have entered into an exclusive, multiyear licensing agreement for a range of programming, including the new Dick Wolf-produced drama FBI.

Also included in the agreement are The CW’s new Charmed series and A Million Little Things from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. In addition to the new shows, the deal extends RTL’s rights to broadcast current and library series from CBS and The CW, including the global hit CBS drama NCIS.

“CBS and RTL have been working together to bring the best of U.S. content to Belgian audiences for over 25 years,” said Armando Nuñez, the president and CEO of CBS Studios International. “We’re excited to build on this important, long-term relationship with another successful slate of CBS programming.”

”We are pleased to pursue our collaboration with CBS Studios International, which allows our viewers to continue watching all the famous characters they’ve learned to love over the years,” said Stéphane Rosenblatt, TV general manager for RTL in Belgium. “CBS programming remains a solid pillar for RTL, helping to continue growing its audiences in the coming years.”
