Cabin Fever Signs Distrib Deal With RHI
Cabin Fever Entertainment has signed a $6 million agreement to distribute RHI Entertainment Inc.'s film and television programs on home video. Among the 21 films for TV included in the package are Emmy winner "The Incident" and Peabody winner "Pack Of Lies." RHI president Robert Halmi Jr. says his company selected Cabin Fever as a partner because of the company's "remarkable" success in distributing RHI's "Lonesome Dove" miniseries, which he says has sold nearly 175,000 units in the last four months. As part of the new deal, Cabin Fever will have video rights to the sequel to "Lonesome Dove," which is expected to air on CBS-TV in late 1992 or early 1993.
