Ah yes - I see what he originally meant. Apologies in turn for making it more confusing!

Michael, while on the subject of licensing are you guys looking at any other studios? there are some real gems lounging in the Paramount vaults like Lets Scare Jessica to Death, Blood and Roses, etc.

also someone said the Universal deal was very limited - any chance of a future extension?

would be good to know that Powerhouse has a healthy roster going into the future.
Obviously I can't discuss ongoing negotiations with rightsholders, but I can certainly confirm that I have a "to do" list in the form of a release schedule stretching nearly a full year ahead, plus tons more unscheduled stuff whose disc specs have yet to be firmed up. So everything's looking very healthy indeed from my perspective.

As for Universal, future acquisitions depend entirely on whether they're happy with existing releases. I can't imagine why they wouldn't be, but the ball's firmly in their court.

(This is standard practice for all labels, incidentally - a major-studio rightsholder will initially only grant them access to a small handful of titles just to make sure that they do a decent job with them. If they do, they might get a chance to delve deeper into the catalogue and/or pick up more commercially attractive titles - for instance, Arrow wouldn't have had a hope in hell of getting the likes of Carrie or The Thing five years ago, but now look at them.)
