E4 has acquired the UK exclusive of CBS comedy Man With A Plan, starring Golden Globe winner Matt LeBlanc. The deal with CBS Studios International also gives E4 the UK linear television premiere of Star Trek: Discovery.
The acclaimed Star Trek: Discovery, which streams on CBS’ premium subscription service CBS All Access in the US and Man With A Plan, starring Matt LeBlanc, will launch on E4 in 2020.
According to Barry Chamberlain, President of Sales, CBS Studios International, “We’re excited to bring the linear television rights for Star Trek: Discovery to the international market and launch in the UK with our valued friends at Channel 4. This agreement features the best of both worlds -- premium subscription content from a global franchise and a very popular network comedy from America’s Most-Watched Network. Channel 4 is already a licensee for several of our top-rated franchises, including The Good Fight and Charmed, and we are confident they will have continued success with Star Trek: Discovery and Man With A Plan.”
