LOST Finds a New Home in Spain

Hey All,
No LOST is not moving to Spain, but a new network will be broadcasting it in Spain! This post is specifically for the international and Spanish readers in Spain, but also shows how global the show is!!

The great news is that the new network has rights on ALL six Seasons and has scheduled all seasons to air so the Season 6 (Series) Finale can air just weeks after it airs in the US. Of course most will still download it, but it shows how a show like LOST has changed the TV industry.

Here is the full report from Variety:

Terrestrial web Cuatro has bought Spanish free-to-air rights to all six seasons of Lost from pubcaster Radio Television Espanola after the sci-fi suspenser flopped with its older demographic.

Disney-ABC-ESPN worked with RTVE and the younger-skewing Cuatro to find a more appropriate home for Lost.

The sale forms part of our cost-cutting strategy, said an RTVE spokesperson, as local broadcasters react to recession by rationalizing the shows they air.

We're excited to be launching Lost with Cuatro, who are a well-matched home for the series, and have ambitious plans in terms of scheduling, marketing and promotional support, said Francesca Tauriello, Disney-ABC-ESPN TV's senior VP of program distribution in Europe, the Middle East and Asia (South).

Launched November 2005, the Sogecable-owned Cuatro has built its brand on U.S. shows such as House, which, now in its fifth season, punched a 16.6 share and 3.2 million viewers on Tuesday, way above Cuatro's 8.9% channel average for March.

Lost fits very well with our brand, and its finale looks set to be a worldwide TV phenomenon, said Cuatro programming director, Fernando Jerez.

Cuatro will sked all six seasons of Lost so that its 2010 sixth-season finale will air a matter of weeks after the U.S., Jerez said.
