LIKE YOUR KIND
Following is an excerpt of a July 8 blog from Kurt Sutter, creator of FX's Sons of Anarchy, reacting to his show's lack of Emmy nominations:
Let's face it, kids, we are the dirty-faced outlaws who no one wants in their clean white town. We are too loud, too violent, too brash. We don't sing, have pretty sets, or wear retro suits.

Cable-to-Cable Is the Next Big Thing
The cable market for top off-network programs this summer is almost as hot as New York's steamy sidewalks. Twentieth Television's Steve MacDonald, executive VP and general sales manager of basic cable, has been behind three of those deals. In three weeks, MacDonald and his team closed deals for rookie network hits Glee, Modern Family and The Cleveland Show. MacDonald talked to B&C's Paige Albiniak about what's driving the market and off-net syndication's next big thing.
