Alliance got its MTV.

Identifying Hungary as "a strategic gateway to the former communist world." Alliance Communications Corp. of Toronto has signed a production agreement with Notion Pictures Foundation of Hungary along with a protocol agreement with MTV, the Hungarian state television network.

Under the agreement, Alliance will co-finance film and TV projects with the Hungarians. The first feature under the deal is Final Decree, to be directed by Ted Kotcheff. Cooperation between Alliance and the Hungarians will take place under the Canada-Hungary Coproduction Treaty.

Final Decree is based on a screenplay by George Jonas from his novel of the same title. Alliance produced Jonas' Vengeance as a mini-series under the title Sword of Gideon.
