FX Pays $100 Million for 15 NBCU Films

Cable network FX will pay more than $100 million for the rights to air 15 NBC Universal films, including George Clooney’s “Leatherheads,” Judd Apatow’s “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and Tina Fey’s “Baby Mama,” Daily Variety reports. The move is part of a trend by cable networks to buy films before they open. FX, which has been among the most aggressive networks, uses TV debuts of feature films as lead ins for series premiere of its original programming, such as “Nip/Tuck” and “Rescue Me,” the newspaper says.
