FX and CBS have acquired television rights to the film “Coach Carter” from Paramount Television Distribution. The movie has earned $65 million at the box office since it was released in January. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

FX will be able to air the Samuel L. Jackson film in September 2007, but CBS will receive a window in March 2008, and is expected to run the film at a time compatible with its coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
