Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" has found a basic cable home at TNT.

TNT has acquired the rights to the World War II dramedy starring Brad Pitt, which will make its premiere on the cable network in 2012.

The license fee is said to be about the standard 12% of the domestic boxoffice tally.

The Weinstein Co.'s "Basterds" has grossed almost $115 million to date.

Its license fee is expected to end up in the neighborhood of $15 million.
