As a follow up to yesterday’s lead story, Comcast, despite early denials, is indeed in discussions about establishing a new joint venture company in partnership with General Electric, owner of NBC Universal. Comcast would lead the new entity, owning a 51% stake in NBC Universal with GE holding 49%. Comcast would likely put up $4 to $6 billion with GE supplying $12 billion in debt to the venture. The deal would allow Comcast to unite its own cable assets (E!, Style, Golf Channel and a cluster of regional sports networks) into the new company. This deal also requires Vivendi losing its 20% stake in NBCU which is majority owned by NBCU.

After receiving a cease-and-desist order from Jon Gosselin, TLC has stopped filming the Gosselin children involved in the reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8, reports the AP. TLC further stated production on the series involving the young twins and sextuplets of Kate and Jon Gosselin would be suspended until more talks can happen between the parents, though other filming on the series continues. TLC released a statement in conjunction with this news saying in part, the network is “deeply disappointed at [Jon’s] continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident … Despite Jon Gosselin’s repeated self-destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC.” This past Monday, TLC announced the reality series would become Kate Plus Eight and Jon Gosselin’s involvement would be diminished. The cease-and-desist order was issued by Gosselin’s lawyer the same day.
Univision Network debuts a new primetime novela titled Sortilegio (Love Spell) starting next Tuesday at 9p. This love story is about a beautiful innocent country girl Maria Jose (played by Jacqueline Bracamontes) who falls in love and marries Alejandro Lombardo (William Levy). Here’s the twist = in reality she marries Alejandro’s dastardly step-brother Bruno (David Zepeda) who is conniving to murder Alejandro so Maria Jose can inherit his fortune as his widow. Sortilegio is produced by Carla Estrada, creator of other novelas such as Amor Real (True Love) and Pasion (Passion).
HISTORY announces a handful of upcoming new series:

Madhouse produced by Triage Entertainment for HISTORY, is set to premiere in 1Q 2010.
  • American Pickers (wt) – The network has begun production on this 10-episode series which is meant to be a companion series for Pawn Stars under the new programming genre National Treasures. This new series is about people who hunt for antiques and rare treasures in the small towns and along back roads of America and in particular will follow two expert “pickers” Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology and his partner Frank Fritz. American Pickers is produced by Cineflix Productions and is slated to premiere in 2010.
  • Sliced – This series cuts objects in half to reveal how they work and their inner workings details. Each episode will be themed corresponding to the object being examined. Sliced is produced for HISTORY by Powderhouse Productions.

Independent media communications agency, Carat released updated forecasts for global advertising spending in 2009 and 2010. Since its first prediction from this past March, Carat now expects global ad spending to decrease by -9.8% overall (vs. -5.8% last March). Despite a gloomy overall calculation for this year, Carat is predicting a slight uptick in ad spending for 2010 by +1% worldwide, spurred on by more stable economic conditions in the West and recovery in such developing markets as China. For the US specifically, Carat expects an ad spend reduction for 2009 at -16.3% (vs. -9.8% from the March forecast). For 2010, Carat forecasts the US market as a whole will still be in the negative but by a single digit at -2.6%. Revised predictions by advertising sector worldwide include: Television ad spending is expected to be down this year by -6.3%, though up in 2010 by +2.2%; Newspapers and Magazine are predicted to take the biggest hits this year at -16.7% and -17.1% respectively and both are expected to be down next year at -2.7% and -3.3% respectively; Radio is also down significantly in 2009 at a calculated -12.4% and just a bit below for 2010 at -0.2%; Cinema down this year by -3.2% and up next year to +1.7%; Outdoor in decline this year by -6.7% and expected to rise in 2010 to +2.4%; and Online, being the only positive category, is expected to gain in ad spending this year by +1.0% and jump to +8.3% in 2010.

FX ordered two more new original dramas:

CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Comcast‘s stock took a hit on Thursday after the company denied reports that it had inked a deal to acquire 51% of NBC Universal for $35 billion. New details unearthed by CNBC suggests that GE would spin off NBCU into a new company that would be merged with the content-related assets of Comcast including E!, the Golf Channel and its regional sports networks. The pact, originally reported Wednesday evening on industry news site The Wrap, hinges upon Vivendi selling its 20% stake in NBCU. One thing’s for sure – a deal of this magnitude would be tough to pull off during the current financial climate.    Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.    

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY: Little Airplane Productions (The Wonder Pets, 3rd & Bird) and Hit Entertainment (Bob the Builder, Thomas & Friends among many others) ink a new partnership to develop original preschool-targeted programming for the worldwide market.  No specifics about potential preschool projects were outlined in the announcement.
