To Launch New Series, Sprout Lets Space Animals Invade Its Kiddie-Program Lineup

10 July 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Space travelers have invaded TV’s kiddie-oriented Sprout network.

Tykes viewing a recent broadcast of the animated series “Justin Time” on the NBCUniversal-owned outlet may have been surprised to see the actual show shrink into the center of the screen as a group of animated animal astronauts surrounded it and started to comment on the action. Yet that surreal tableau is indicative of the aggressive maneuvers it sometimes takes to get a TV show – even one aimed at tater tots (young couch potatoes) – off the launching pad.

To get the word out about “Astroblast!,” a new original animated series set to debut on Sprout July 12th and then run seven days a week, the network is using an unorthodox means of promotion. About ten times per day in the week leading to the debut of the new program this Saturday, certain Sprout programs are being used for what Andrew Beecham, »

Steve Koonin Leaves Time Warner’s Turner For Atlanta Hawks

13 April 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Steve Koonin, who as entertainment chief at Time Warner’s Turner unit presided over a long run of growth at big cable networks like TNT, TBS, truTV and TCM, as well as a streak of aggressive, sometimes maverick promotional maneuvers,  is leaving his post to take the reins of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks, as well as an equity position in the team.

News of his departure came as a surprise to many Turner insiders. It follows the larger shakeup at the Turner unit, which also encompasses CNN, Cartoon Network and digital properties such as the Bleacher Report. John Martin, formerly chief financial officer of the media conglomerate, became CEO in January of this year, with longtime chief Phil Kent taking a chairman role prior to his retirement in December.

David Levy, a Turner executive who supervises ad sales, distribution and sports, was named president. Koonin’s departure follows that of Greg D’Alba, »

Fox and WWE Determined to Give Us ‘Jingle All The Way’ Sequel With Wrestlers And Rednecks

Larry the Cable Guy is still a thing, folks. It’s true. Larry, real name Daniel Whitney, has managed to sustain a weird level of pop culture relevance since debuting his redneck persona in the early nineties. The Blue Collar Comedy Tour staple alongside comedians Ron White, Bill Engvall, and ringleader Jef Foxworthy, Whitney has hosted Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy on the History Channel (“Larry’s Favorite Stuff” is a particularly touching episode), voiced the beloved tow truck Mater in Pixar’s Cars franchise, and swung a Golden Raspberry Award in 2013′s A Madea Christmas. Dude Ain’t going away, and both Fox and WWE Studios have every intention of keeping Larry Cable Guyin’ in 2014 with the weirdly random announcement of a sequel to 1996′s Jingle All the Way. Yes, Larry is stepping into Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shoes as lead in a direct to home video entry into what will now be a »
