Hart Sharp Video Adds to TV DVD Lineup19 Jul, 2005 By: Thomas K. Arnold
Hart Sharp Video is the latest indie DVD supplier to up its commitment to TV DVD, inking a deal with E! Entertainment Television to distribute season one of “Dr. 90210” in the fourth quarter and “Wild On” in 2006.
The deal follows several other high-profile acquisitions Hart Sharp has made over the past two years, including deals with Sundance Channel Home Entertainment, the estate of Frank Sinatra, the controversial documentary Super Size Me and Major League Baseball Productions' “Yankeeography” series.
“E! is one of the hottest networks on the remote these days,” said Joe Amodei, president of Hart Sharp Video. “Our plans are to transfer that excitement onto DVD.”
Sheila Johnson, SVP of business operations for E! Networks, said both programs will arrive on DVD with “bonus content not seen” on the network.
