Oxygen Media signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with Twentieth Television for the basic cable syndication rights to FOX’s musical series Glee. Oxygen also picked up the right to develop a new reality series based on Glee. Oxygen will add Glee to its schedule with a weekend marathon of the second season episodes next January 2011 followed by the companion unscripted reality competition series that searches for the next Glee star who will debut in June 2011. Oxygen will gain exclusive basic cable rights to air all seasons of Glee on its schedule starting in 2013. Oxygen is reportedly paying an estimated $500,000 per episode for Glee. Glee is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.

In another Twentieth Television deal, USA Network acquired the exclusive syndication rights to ABC’s comedy Modern Family. USA Network, as part of the agreement, will schedule the series as a strip Monday through Sunday starting Fall 2013. The network is apparently paying $1.4 million per episode for Modern Family, just slightly less than what TBS is paying for Warner Bros.’ The Big Bang Theory at $1.5 million an episode. Modern Family is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Levitan Lloyd Productions.
