Outdoor Channel Holdings, Inc. renewed its multi-year affiliation deal with Time Warner Cable. The new agreement continues the distribution partnership involving Outdoor Channel’s standard-def, hi-def and VOD content.

Canadian-based Knight Enterprises licensed the summer BBQ series Licence to Grill to BET International in the UK and Africa. Hosted by Rob Rainford, the series has been successful in such countries as the US, Romania, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand and Asia and the franchise includes two cookbooks, companion CDs, apparel and a DVD set which will be available soon at Wal-Mart stores in the US.


Comedy Central and Levity Entertainment formed a multi-year output deal for a series of stand-up specials slated to premiere on the network this year and next as well as having many of the specials released on DVD and distributed by Comedy Central Home Entertainment. Six stand-up specials highlighting Christopher Titus, Gabriel Iglesias, Pablo Francisco, Jim Breuer, Mitch Fatel and Pete Correale will air in 2009 and an additional six more, including one featuring Jeff Dunham, will be shot this year to air in 2010. Comedy Central Home Entertainment will then release at least eight special on DVD.


CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:   A day after the AP unveiled its intentions to take firmer control of its content online, Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt advised newspaper publishers to embrace digital platforms as a way to serve the needs of today’s readers in a carefully scripted closing keynote address at the Newspaper Assn. of America‘s annual confab. His recommendations included taking advantage of mobile devices as a reading platform. Regarding the AP flap, Mr. Schmidt warned publishers to heed what the reader wants: “These are ultimately consumer businesses. If you piss off enough of them you will not have any more, or if you make them happy, you will grow them quickly.” An attorney for Google also responded to the AP’s vow to track down illegal content aggregators in its public policy blog yesterday, claiming that the new stance doesn’t pertain to Google’s longtime partnership with the news service.   Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Production has begun on Skyrunners, the first original TV movie for Disney XD.  A science fiction adventure starring Kelly Blatz (Aaron Stone) and newcomer Joey Pollari, Skyrunners will feature alien creature effects designed and created by Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong and The Chronicles of Narnia).  The story revolves around two teen brothers that commandeer a UFO that crashes near their town and uncover an evil alien plot to take over Earth.  A production of Ranger Productions and Shaftesbury Services II, Inc., Skyrunners is directed by Ralph Hemecker (Numb3rs) and written by Richard C. Okie (Quantum Leap, Earth: Final Conflict) along with Adam Wilson & Melanie Wilson. Okie also serves as executive-producer of the movie.  Full edition: CYN KIDS.
