Me-TV Announces New Shows on Fall Schedule Including NBCUniversal Series "Kojak," "The Rockford Files," & "Columbo"

9/20/11 - Chicago, Illinois - Me-TV adds classic programming from NBCUniversal Television Distribution to the fall schedule and network library, joining acquisitions from Twentieth Television, CBS Television Distribution, and independent producers and distributors.

Me-TV continues to define classic television with key acquisitions from the NBCUniversal library including three iconic detective series: 'The Rockford Files,' 'Kojak' and 'Columbo.' In addition, Me-TV viewers will find 'Leave it to Beaver,' 'Dragnet,' 'Adam 12,' 'Boris Karloff's Thriller,' 'The Alfred Hitchcock Hour,' 'Wagon Train,' (both the original 60 minute and 90 minute versions) enhancing the Me-TV schedule over the course of the next few years. Also to air on the network will be 1970's favorite 'Emergency' as well as Raymond Burr's other series, 'Ironside.'

"Our goal has always been to present the most diverse and complete schedule of memorable entertainment to our affiliates, advertisers, and of course audience. Adding programming of this caliber from NBCUniversal furthers our goal and is a response to requests and suggestions from many of our affiliates, as well as hundreds of viewer email requests," stated Neal Sabin, President of Content and Networks for Weigel Broadcasting Co.

Many of these NBCUniversal series will begin airing on Me-TV as early as Monday, September 26, 2011 when the network's fall schedule launches, while others will premiere over the next several years, helping to insure a long-term variety on the Me-TV schedule. Additional fall premieres include the original 'Star Trek' and 'Batman' series. In addition, favorites 'Daniel Boone' and 'The Rifleman' have been acquired through the Peter Rodgers Organization and the original 'Laurel & Hardy' shorts and features have been acquired through RHI Entertainment Distribution; both titles will premiere this fall on Me-TV.

These series all join the iconic 'M*A*S*H,' 'Cheers,' 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' 'Hawaii Five-0' and many other shows that truly define classic TV.
