National networks, Univision and Telemundo, are not the only Hispanic-targeted networks which will increase their coverage of the presidential campaign, according to Multichannel News. Many smaller networks will follow suit in an effort to mobilize the Latino vote. Public channel V-me TV will launch a comprehensive umbrella campaign called Participa 2008 which kicks off with a three-hour Super Tuesday special hosted by journalist Jorge Gestoso.

ReelzChannel offers a series of seven specials next month leading up the 80th Annual Academy Awards. The month-long campaign starts with ReelzChannel Special Feature: Best Supporting Actor and Actress this Friday at 830p and is topped off by a 30m Dailies show, And the Winners Were … airing live following the awards presentation on February 24. Specials in-between will focus on Sundance Film Festival, Best Actor and Actress, Producers Guild of America Awards, Best Director and Best Picture.

MTV’s Making the Band 4, Season 2 premiere on Monday (10p) delivered a 2.2 rating among P12-34 and averaged 2.2 million total viewers.

SCI FI Channel opens a block of investigative reality programming on March 5 as season four of Ghost Hunters returns at 9p and the second season launch of Destination Truth! begins at 10p.

BBC America also returns two of its dramas this spring as Hotel Babylon begins a third season with eight one-hour episodes on March 12 at 9p, produced by Carnival Films and distributed by BBC Worldwide. Robin Hood starts its second season April 26 at 9p with thirteen 65m episodes, a co-production with Tiger Aspect Productions and BBC America and distributed by BBC Worldwide.


Sci Fi Channel gave the official go ahead to a drama series called Sanctuary, ordering 13 episodes, reports THR.  The series originally debuted online as a hi-def web series, before going to cable.  The story follows a doctor and her protege, working to provide sanctuary to the elusive and strange creatures on earth.  The television series will use the full webisode cast, and the series is scheduled to begin production in March with a two hour pilot episode.


CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY: Better late than never. MySpace finally followed suit with Facebook in opening up its platform to third party applications. The MySpace developers platform, which goes live on Feb. 5, will enjoy some later adopter advantages. For one it will support Google‘s OpenSocial initiative from day one, enabling interoperability between other social networks including imeem, LinkedIn, Ning and orkut. Additionally MySpace says it will focus on monetizing third party content by allowing developers to share in ad revenue sold by its national sales team. Facebook, which opened up its API last month to allow apps to be added to outside sites, has seen its traffic virtually double to 23 million unique users since launching its developer platform last May.  Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.
