Cbs's Moonves Would Have Paid More Than Nbc For Globes

In a court filing, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has submitted a transcript of a deposition by CBS Chairman Les Moonves in which he said that he had informed HFPA President Philip Berk that he was prepared to pay $25 million over five years for rights to the Golden Globes Awards. "It was an opening offer, and anyone who does these negotiations knows there's more room than that when you put it out." The HFPA is suing Dick Clark Productions for allegedly making an unauthorized seven-year deal with NBC that came to $21.5 million over seven years. At the center of the HFPA's lawsuit is a 1993 agreement with DCP that DCP claims gives it the right to continue to produce the awards show if it secures a deal with NBC to televise it.
