Media and real estate execs announced plans to launch multi-platform The Real Estate Network by early 2016, offering “real estate information and transaction capability for consumers.” Founding ESPN chairman Stuart Evey is chairman of the board; real estate entrepreneur Robert Atkinson is CEO. The venture “has the same potential as ESPN and will revolutionize the real estate industry in the same way that ESPN did for sports,” said Evey.


NBCUniversal’s Telemundo and mun2 announced plans for over 550 hours of FIFA soccer events across all video platforms. “Three years and one week ago, NBCUniversal announced the game-changing acquisition of the exclusive Spanish-language US media rights to the FIFA World Cup,” said Joe Uva, chairman, Hispanic Enterprises and content, NBCU. “We are proud to see the first tangible manifestation of this major acquisition, which will bring unprecedented exposure for Telemundo and mun2 and offer a unique opportunity to accelerate audience growth and consolidate our position in the industry.” Fox has English-language rights.

Netflix released the first trailer for Marco Polo – a series that, judging from the minute-and-a-half clip, is not for the squeamish. Or prudish. Historical drama from Netflix and The Weinstein Company will be available for streaming Friday, December 12.

One of the highlights of CBS’s holiday programming will be the 50th anniversary airing of Christmas classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on Tuesday, December 9 at 8p.

MacFarlane’s no stranger to science – he was an exec producer on the 2014 update of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and has said, “The work of Carl Sagan has been a profound influence on my life.”


Paramount Television and Jerry Bruckheimer announced they’re developing a TV adaptation of American Gigolo. Bruckheimer, a producer on the 1980 crime drama starring Richard Gere, will exec produce; Paul Schrader, director and writer of the film, will serve as an executive consultant. “When it comes to making great television entertainment, Jerry Bruckheimer Television is in a league unto themselves,” said Amy Powell, president of Paramount Television. Bruckheimer TV programs include the CSI franchise and The Amazing Race.

Lifetime ordered The Women of the Bible from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (The Bible), to be narrated by Downey and featuring interviews with women in the faith community. Two-hour special on Sunday, December 7 at 7p leads into biblical miniseries The Red Tent.
