’Angel’ heads to TNT: TNT is about to become "Angel"-ic now that the cable network has entered an agreement with Twentieth Television to air off-net rights of the WB series "Angel" as early as fall 2003. Angel joins a TNT lineup that features top dramas such as "Law & Order," "NYPD Blue," "ER," "The X-Files" and "Charmed," which form the network’s daytime lineup. Since its launch in October 2002 TNT’s daytime lineup has posted double-digit growth across key adults and households vs. previous weekday blocks and helped power TNT to its best-ever total-day growth in network history this past year.
"Over the past two years, we’ve enjoyed a mutually rewarding relationship with the Turner networks," stated Bob Cook, president and chief operating officer of Twentieth Television. "That relationship continues to thrive with this recent purchase. We’re pleased to have "Angel" joining the list of high-profile dramas on TNT’s schedule. Executive producer Joss Whedon has created and continues to deliver an innovative, groundbreaking show that has garnered a tremendous fan base."
CBS adds another sitcom pilot: CBS has ordered a sitcom pilot starring Nicole Sullivan. Ms. Sullivan plays a veterinarian who is newly married to a man with three brothers. She finds that instead of just one new man in her life, she has four. The untitled pilot from Touchstone Television is written and executive produced by Susan Dickes. #
