Germany's Senator Entertainment has sold a package of some 29 video/DVD titles, including: America's Sweethearts, The Others, Black Hawk Down, Lammbock and Mondscheintarif to Universal Pictures Germany.

The deal, which covers the German language market, is valued at a double-digit million Euros amount, according to both partners, and Senator is looking to "significant sales growth", particularly from the booming DVD sector.

The deal comes less than a month after Senator caught the financial community unawares by issuing a profit warning for 2001 which saw it reduce its targetted revenues from Euros 197.1m to Euros 125-130m and its EBIT from Euros 40m to Euros 2-5m.
