NEW YORK -- TNT has acquired exclusive off-network rights to the WB Network drama series Angel from Twentieth Television. The 88-episode library will cost TNT about $300,000 per episode, according to sources close to the deal, which was closed quickly over the course of last month's NATPE conference in New Orleans. TNT outbid several competing networks as well. Scheduled to run twice each weekday beginning in the fall, Angel will join the network's daytime lineup, which includes Law & Order, NYPD Blue and ER. Currently a solid primetime performer in its fourth season on the WB, Angel will likely be paired on TNT with fellow WB series Charmed.
