TNT Hunger Games Divergent TV Rights

Variety is reporting that TNT has officially acquired the television rights to Divergent and The Hunger Games.

“The ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Divergent’ franchises fit perfectly within TNT’s brand evolution and expansion into action-packed genre programming,” said Michael Wright, President, Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. “Like our current hits ‘The Last Ship’ and ‘Legends’ and the upcoming series ‘The Librarians,’ the movies in these franchises are ideal for drawing young adults to the network. We look forward to making ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Divergent’ movies the kind of event programming that will engage and excite fans for years to come.”

“We’re delighted to launch this partnership with TNT for two of our biggest global franchises,” said Jim Packer, Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution. “The agreement underscores the breadth and depth of our content portfolio and supplies TNT with blockbuster franchises that will resonate with their audiences for many years to come.”

The deal also includes network premiere windows for “Divergent” and sequel “Insurgent,” which will hit theaters in March 2015, along with two further follow-up films, making TNT the first basic cable network with access to all four “Divergent” pics at the same time. Additionally, the pact includes telecast rights to “The Hunger Games” and sequel “Catching Fire.” “The Hunger Games” will air on TNT in winter 2015, with “Catching Fire” following in winter 2016, “Mockingjay – Part 1″ airing in 2017, and “Part 2″ in 2018.
