Grab a Date: Thursday Night is Movie Night on Court TV(R) With Most Wanted Movies(SM)

Investigation-Themed Blockbuster Films from Turner Library to Air Thursday Nights at 8 P.M. ET/PT Starting August 17

PASADENA, Calif., July 14 -- Court TV, acquired in full by Time Warner in May, takes the first step in maximizing the resources of its new corporate parent Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. by building on its movie line up with Most Wanted Movies(SM), premiering Thursday, August 17, at 8 P.M. ET/PT. Every Thursday at 8 P.M., Court TV will air a recently-produced feature film in the crime and investigation genre from Turner's vast library, with a line-up that includes action, drama and comedy. Scheduling of the films was closely coordinated between all the Turner networks to maximize audience.

"Court TV has aired films regularly for many years, but Turner's film library is a treasure trove for any programmer and really takes our movie offerings to the next level -- we felt like kids in a candy store," said Court TV COO Art Bell. "We selected these films strategically, with the goal of reaching new viewers and exposing them to our original programming through the portal of blockbuster films. It is the first of many opportunities we hope to explore as members of the Turner family."

Most films will run two hours in duration and will feature commercial breaks. Films longer than two hours will air at 7 P.M. ET/PT. The network's selections for Most Wanted Movies(SM) include such films as "Seven" (8/24); "In the Line of Fire" (8/31); "A Few Good Men"; "The Client"; "Runaway Jury"; "Pelican Brief"; "Analyze This"; "Donnie Brasco" and the August 17 premiere, "Bad Boys," starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence among many others.

Court TV, a Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. company, provides a window on the American system of justice through distinctive programming that both informs and entertains. Seen in 86 million U.S. homes, Court TV Networks(SM) is comprised of Court TV News(SM), which provides live trial coverage in daytime; Court TV: Seriously Entertaining(SM) in prime time, featuring investigative drama, expert reality and compelling non-fiction series; and Court TV Extra(SM), a subscription Web-based service offering viewers an interactive opportunity to watch multiple live trials on the Internet, while accessing the tremendous resources of Court TV Online.
