RHI to Produce Movies for Spike TV

RHI Entertainment will help Spike TV to stock its film shelves under terms of an agreement announced Thursday.

The production company, run by Robert Halmi Sr. and Robert Halmi Jr., reached agreements last month to produce 10 original movies for Sci Fi Channel in 2007 (www.multichannel.com/article/CA6383947.html) and at least 12 original TV movies and three miniseries for Hallmark Channel in 2007 (www.multichannel.com/article/CA6382251.html).

RHI will produce 12 films for Spike, with delivery beginning in October 2007.

“The Halmis are pros at delivering great storytelling,” Spike TV executive vice president of original programming Pancho Mansfield said in a prepared statement. “We look forward to working together with them on these movies.”
