Default AmericanLife TV Network Acquires Classic 20th TV Shows, From WKRP, Batman, to Newhart

AMERICANLIFE TV NETWORK REACHES

AGREEMENT WITH TWENTIETH TELEVISION FOR TELEVISION PROGRAMMING

‘ Hill Street Blues,’ ‘WKRP in Cincinnati ,’ ‘ L.A. Law’ and

‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Among Programs to be Added to

Network’s Primetime Line-Up


WASHINGTON, DC/LOS ANGELES – AmericanLife TV Network SM, the only independent network devoted to the Baby Boomer generation, has reached a long-term agreement with Twentieth Television for a library of classic television series. The announcement was jointly made today by Mark Ringwald, VP of Programming for AmericanLife TV and Steve MacDonald, EVP, General Manager, Basic Cable for Twentieth Television.

Among the acquired shows:

Batman
Hill Street Blues
L.A. Law
Lost in Space
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
Newhart
St. Elsewhere
WKRP in Cincinnati

Regarding the announcement, Ringwald stated: “These are great series, with favorite characters for which we still have an emotional connection and stories that pull us in and make us laugh or touch our heart. Our primetime programming blocks remain a destination for boomers and their families to watch high-quality programming together, reconnecting with classic television stars, as well as with today’s current names in earlier roles.”

“This partnership with AmericanLife TV offers a sensational platform for viewers to both embrace and experience again some of television’s most applauded programs,” added Twentieth Television’s MacDonald.


Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere and L.A. Law will debut in June in an all-new Sunday primetime schedule starting June 3. The other programs will be airing in varying time slots later this year.

Coming in July on Mondays from 9-11pm (with an encore from 11pm-1am) are the sitcoms The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Newhart, WKRP in Cincinnati and The Bob Newhart Show. This block is called "The Greatest Comedies" and it will replace "The Private Eyes" block of Hawaiian Eye, Bourbon Street, Surfside 6 and Harry O.

I'm equally excited about Sundays:
Hill Street Blues
St. Elsewhere
LA Law

THAT'S got me excited.

Of course, I'm probably losing the channel in a couple weeks (moving, probably getting satellite), so this stinks.

Looks like I'll be able to get the channel once I get rid of Directv and switch to a Free to Air receiver.

So by July every show that is listed in the press release will air but Batman and Lost in Space. The shows listed in the press release is NOT a full list. So, hopefully we get more shows to air! May I hint Mr. Belvedere and Small Wonder AmericanLife??

Yes, I love St. Elsewhere too. Seeing this at night will bring back some good memories !

I'm glad my cable provider recently brought this channel back, because this lineup sounds terrific.

Finally, a cable network airing GOOD shows. All they need to do is add Barney Miller and Bewitched to their lineup and they'd be all set.

Newhart? Mary Tyler Moore?! WKR-freakin'-P in Cincinnati?!? How awesome. I would love to see L.A. Law again. Haven't seen that in years.

I REALLY wish I had this channel. TVLand needs to start taking some serious notes from these people. Fast.

Exactly why I'm getting rid of Directv, I'll soon be able to watch this channel, ION and hundreds more at no cost.
