Manatt Represents Dr. Phil in Professional Bull Riders Media Rights Split with CBS and Merit Street

A Manatt team led by Christopher Chatham represented television personality Phillip McGraw, professionally known as Dr. Phil, in his deal with Professional Bull Riders (PBR) for a media rights split with CBS and Merit Street Media, the TV outlet launched earlier this year by McGraw.

Starting in July, a significant number of PBR events will be seen on Merit Street Media. As part of a new four-year deal, McGraw’s Merit Street will carry PBR Team events, the full schedule for PBR Unleash The Beast—the sport’s individual competition series—and 50 episodes of PBR Now, a news, information and analysis program.

The Manatt team included Laurence Marks, Matthew Reece and Sandra Bignone.
