Variety revealed this week that, in a tremendously huge deal, TNT has secured the network television rights to both Divergent and The Hunger Games!

“The ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Divergent’ franchises fit perfectly within TNT’s brand evolution and expansion into action-packed genre programming,” said Michael Wright, President, Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. “Like our current hits ‘The Last Ship’ and ‘Legends’ and the upcoming series ‘The Librarians,’ the movies in these franchises are ideal for drawing young adults to the network. We look forward to making ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Divergent’ movies the kind of event programming that will engage and excite fans for years to come.”
“We’re delighted to launch this partnership with TNT for two of our biggest global franchises,” said Jim Packer, Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution. “The agreement underscores the breadth and depth of our content portfolio and supplies TNT with blockbuster franchises that will resonate with their audiences for many years to come.”

Divergent is slated for its T.V. premiere in 2016, with the three film sequels following one per year in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Variety also revealed that HBO still has the first-run pay rights to the Divergent franchise.

This is exciting news for Divergent, Initiates! With movies like The Lord of the Rings  and Hobbit already under their belt, TNT is going to provide great exposure for Divergent and be a perfect T.V. home!
