Eagle Rock Entertainment And Fremantlemedia Enterprises Ink Home Entertainment Music DVD Distribution Deal At MIPCOM

Eagle Rock Entertainment and FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) has announced the signing of an output deal by which FME will release all new music DVD titles from Eagle Vision (one of Eagle Rock's Home Entertainment labels) in Australia and New Zealand.
The deal was brokered at MIPCOM, Cannes, by COO of Eagle Rock, Geoff Kempin and Daryl O'Connor, Senior Vice President, FME Home Entertainment Australia and New Zealand, who was recently appointed to run the label. Simultaneous to the deal, FME has appointed Shock Entertainment to handle sales and distribution of the new music DVD content which FME has licensed from Eagle Rock.
The first major release out of the alliance is appropriately, 'Neil Diamond in Australia' which will be released next month ahead of Diamond's upcoming tour. Additionally, Jeff Beck's first ever music DVD, 'Live at Ronnie Scott's' will also be amongst the early titles released, featuring guest artists such as Eric Clapton and Joss Stone, timed to Beck's approaching Australian tour.
Commented Geoff Kempin: "Terry Shand, Chairman of Eagle Rock Entertainment, and I have always taken a lot of care to choose the best partners for our substantial business in the territory. This deal is a major commitment on behalf of FME and Shock and we believe their confidence in Eagle Vision will prove itself quickly with Neil Diamond and over and over with the many follow-up titles."
Added FME's Daryl O'Connor: "Eagle Rock's music DVD content consistently attracts a very strong audience so we are excited to have acquired such excellent content. We are also delighted to be working with Shock, which is a recognised force in the territory for sales and distribution."
Chairman of Shock Entertainment, David Williams, stated: "Eagle Rock and FME have a terrific schedule of upcoming music DVD titles and we are pleased to be in partnership with them to maximise business through our company."
With the FME label in place in Australia and New Zealand, it is now able to work with various distribution partners for its own programming as well as licensed programming as exemplified in the Eagle Rock agreement.
