Just as news came yesterday Warner Bros. would return to the NATPE 2008 convention floor, comes news today that CBS Television Distribution will not be returning. You know what that means – no King World booth or suite, and no big annual bash.  This is not a final decision for all future NATPEs, in fact CBS TV Distribution says it will revisit this decision each year.  And with all that said, CBS Paramount International Television will be attending.  Sony has also opted off the convention floor this year – choosing to take a suite instead. As is now its tradition, 20th will also be in a suite.  NBC Universal will be on the floor.

USA Network and Sci Fi have ponied up for a handful of Lionsgate films, according to Daily Variety.  For a cool $20 million, the two cablers have picked up the rights to Saw II, 3:10 to Yuma, Good Luck Chuck, Chaos, Crank, The Condemned and War, among others.  Both Yuma and Chuck are still to be additionally cleared on a broadcast network or potentially to a second cable network. Crank and Chaos become available to USA and Sci Fi in 2009, while the majority of the others will make their way over in 2010.

HOLA Networks launched the first premium online display advertising network targeted exclusively to Hispanics living in the U.S. through a strategic partnership with 24/7 Real Media.  The new network opens with approximately 4.5 million unique users in the U.S. and will meet the needs of the U.S. Hispanic advertising market by offering updated optimization tools and segmentation capabilities. HOLA Networks includes international websites in Spanish that have audience penetration in the U.S. in addition to other U.S. Hispanic websites reaching niche and hard-to-find audiences.

In anticipation of its upcoming makeover January 1 from Court TV to truTV, the network revealed its new tagline: “Not Reality. Actuality.” with a promise to viewers to offer programming involving real situations, real stakes and real people. The network also unveiled plans for two new series:

Wildlife expert Jarod Miller and celebrity dog trainer Dina Zaphiris will co-host the production from 3Ball Productions.

Lifetime begins production of its newest pilot project The Verdict next month, produced by Lionsgate.  The story focuses on a celebrity who has been accused of hiring someone to kill her love.

Based on the UK series Spaced, Fox‘s new comedy pilot project is about a man and woman who pretend to be a couple to get cheaper rent rates.  This project is from Wonderland Sound and Vision, Warner Bros. TV, and Granada producing.
