FIC powers up with S.H.I.E.L.D. deal

SHIELD_2Fox International Channels has acquired Disney-distributed US scripted series including the much-hyped superhero series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for its Spanish channels.

Along with Marvel Television and ABC Studios-produced S.H.I.E.L.D., the deal also gives FIC Spanish broadcast rights to Josh Holloway-fronted Intelligence, Bradley Whitford comedy Trophy Wife, procedural Killer Woman, lottery winner drama Lucky 7 and ABC Family series Twisted.

S.H.I.E.L.D. will broadcast on 21st Century Fox-owned FIC’s Spanish nets Fox and Fox Crime this year, while the others will air this year and next.

Since this year’s L.A. Screenings, channels such as Canada’s CTV and Australia’s Network Seven have acquired S.H.I.E.L.D., with more deals likely to close in coming months.

Disney Media Distribution sells the series, though FIC directly struck its deal with Disney Spain & Portugal.
