CBS Studios International & Sky Ink New Licensing Agreement


CBS Studios International and Sky in the U.K. have signed a new, expanded licensing agreement for CBS programming, which includes Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary and Elementary.

Hawaii Five-0 will continue to be broadcast on Sky One, while Madam Secretary and Elementary are broadcast on Sky Witness. The deal also includes The Late Late Show with James Corden and FBI, Dick Wolf’s new fall drama series about the inner workings of the bureau’s New York office.

“For many years, we have successfully delivered Sky a slate of broad, powerful, advertiser-friendly series,” said Stephen Tague, executive VP of client relations in EMEA at CBS Studios International. “We think FBI is a terrific addition to the Sky schedule, building on the consistency and reliability that broadcasters have come to expect from CBS programming.”
