TV One and Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution Ink Comprehensive, Multi- Year Programming Agreement for Movies, Series Including Off-Network Premiere Of All of Us and Eve, as Well as Rights to Martin and Living Single

-- Acquisition of UPN Sitcoms All of Us and Eve Marks the First Time TV One Has Obtained Off-Network Rights to Sitcoms Currently Airing on a Broadcast Network --

ATLANTA, April 10 -- In a comprehensive, multi-year programming agreement, TV One has acquired rights from Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution to air popular movies and series, including All of Us, Eve, Martin and Living Single. The acquisition of current UPN sitcoms All of Us and Eve marks the first time the new network for African American adults has acquired the off-network rights to sitcoms currently airing on a broadcast network. As part of the deal, TV One will also acquire the rights to air recent episodes of Showtime at the Apollo, including new episodes two weeks after their syndication debut. The announcement was made during the National Cable Television Association convention in Atlanta.

A broad range of movie titles are part of the WBDCD programming package, which includes windows on classic dramas such as The Color Purple, Malcolm X, Lean on Me, Round Midnight and Rosewood; action movies such as Boiling Point and New Jack City; comedies such as Uptown Saturday Night and Strictly Business; musicals such as Purple Rain, Cabin in the Sky, Krush Groove and Sparkle; and classic blaxploitation films such as Shaft and Superfly, among others.

Additional series to which TV One is acquiring rights under the deal include Roc, For Your Love, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, The Parent 'Hood, Wanda at Large, All About the Andersons, Fastlane and A Man Called Hawk.

Under the deal, TV One's rights to air All of Us, which ranks among Nielsen's Top 10 primetime series in African American households this season to date, and Eve begin in fall 2006, and the rights to air Living Single begin in fall 2008. TV One is renewing the rights to air Martin and Roc, which currently air on TV One.

"Martin and Roc have already proved very popular with TV One viewers, and we expect the rest of this Warner Bros. package to help ensure we continue to have a strong lineup of acquired scripted programming to complement our original programming as we work toward making TV One the premier viewing destination for African American adults," said TV One Executive Vice President of Programming and Production Rose Catherine Pinkney.

"We are thrilled to be expanding our already successful programming relationship with TV One," said Eric Frankel, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution. "We're confident that the addition of feature films, the premieres of off-network comedies, the licensing of proven hits and the renewal of successful staples of their already strong line-up will provide a nice boost to their schedule."
