TV One -- a soon-to-launch cable network for African-American adults -- has picked up two off-net dramas, City of Angels
and Under One Roof
, from King World Television.
The network -- which is backed by heavyweights Comcast Corp. and minority-owned radio group Radio One Inc. -- is slated to launch in January.
The channel will get 24 episodes of City of Angels
and six episodes of Under One Roof
. Both shows aired at one time on CBS.
TV One is interested in acquiring off-nets and, if they work, possibly making more shows, like Sci Fi Channel has done with Showtime’s Stargate SG-1
