France still must play 60% EEC.

France has a new television quota law which reduces the number of French-made shows a network is obliged to carry, but retains the networks' obligation to present at least 60 percent European, i.e. EEC-produced programming.

Already approved by the French Senate, the measure now has the approval of the French General Assembly.

It calls for the French channels to carry at least 40 per cent locally produced series and dramas, a reduction from the prior 50 per cent.

However, the networks must choose at least 60 per cent European material, which means that the overall impact of the French quota law as far as the Americans are concerned remains exactly the same as before.
