In a landmark deal, TNT has acquired the TV rights to both Divergent and The Hunger Games.
“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 cabler’s premiere window for “Divergent” begins in 2016, with the three sequel films following in the subsequent three years.
HBO still has the first-run pay rights to Divergent franchise.
However, this is great news for Divergent, as TNT also has been host to other big names like The Lord of the Rings and provides more exposure to Divergent!
