SOAPnet will soon air same-day episodes of the CBS soap, The Young & the Restless from Sony Pictures Television, in a new multi-year deal starting April 24. The same-day Y&R episodes will air at 7p Monday through Friday and again in a Saturday night marathon. SOAPnet also has access to Y&R historical episodes for stunts and specials.

USA Network has picked up the cable rights to off-net series NCIS, distributed by Paramount Domestic Television, according to Variety. The five year deal covers 88 episodes, and will go to USA in 2008.  Paramount may well also sell the show to broadcast stations, and has also retained the VOD rights.  And while USA could have picked up the current season re-purposing rights, it has opted out for this year, tho may revisit that option next year.

Mark Burnett Productions’ series Rock Star (working title) eliminates one rock star hopeful each week until one is standing.  The winner becomes the lead singer in a new band called Supernova.  All of that you probably knew already.  Here’s the new stuff:  The other musicians in the Supernova band are drummer Tommy Lee, bass guitarist Jason Newsted and lead guitarist Gilby Clarke.  Those three will also be on the judges’ panel for the show.  Once the winner is decided, the band will cut an original album to be released next fall, and then go on a world tour beginning in 2007.  Rock Star is scheduled to premiere this summer on CBS.

ABC and sister cable network ABC Family have picked up the rights to eight feature films, distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution:  Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Polar Express and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Cinderella Story, Scooby-Doo 2, and Looney Tunes: Back in Action.  According to Variety, the license fees add to $90 million, with ABC Family picking up the lion’s share of the cost at $60 million. 

From the “Auntie Em, it’s a twister!” files: Discovery Channel‘s six-part bad-weather series Perfect Disaster premieres Sunday, March 19, from 9-11p.  Using CGI rendering, viewers will see the inside of terrible storms and how to spot the warning signs of approaching extreme weather.  The show is produced for Discovery Channel by Impossible Pictures.  Will Aslett is EP for Impossible Pictures, and Gaynelle Evans is EP for Discovery Channel.

A new series for E! EntertainmentThe Daily 10 is a daily 30m series set to launch on March 27 at 730p, is a countdown of the day’s top pop culture stories, covering stories not seen E! News.  The new series will be hosted by Debbie Matenopoulos, Catt Sadler and Sal Masekela.
