“Last year we saw a gaping void in syndication, especially in the supply of fresh, high utility content for weekends,” said PPI principal, Ritch Colbert. “With three outstanding partners – A+E Networks, Bell Media and Inverleigh – we filled that void and more by offering three new high-quality series, while giving our broadcast affiliates unprecedented flexibility and value. We’re so gratified to see all three series enjoy such a fast start.”
Scheduled in both Monday to Friday strip and weekend time-slots, “Intervention” airs on stations in the Tribune, Nexstar, Scripps, Sinclair, Weigel, Tegna, Hearst, Meredith, Cox, Titan, American Spirit, Morgan Murphy, Quincy and News Press Gazette groups. Twice nominated and in 2009 awarded the Emmy® for Outstanding Reality Series, “Intervention” is the five-time PRISM Award-winning one hour series that brings attention to the enormous social, economic and environmental cost of drug addiction, alcohol abuse and compulsive behavior. “Intervention” is produced by GRB Entertainment for A&E Network.
Anchored by stations from the FOX O&Os, Nexstar, Sinclair, Tegna, Cox, Quincy and Heartland groups, “The Syndie Sports Network,“ or “SSN,” features the greatest names and games in all of sports. Three “SSN” weekly half-hour series – “The Immortals,” “The Shortlist” and “Pure Outdoor” – put viewers in the center of the action and expand sports rotations and sponsorship packages for stations. “SSN” is produced by Inverleigh, a premium sports content production and media distribution agency, servicing more than 400 broadcast clients globally with a library of over 1,000 hours of high-value sports content solutions.
On stations in the Tribune, Nexstar, Sinclair, Scripps, Tegna, Hearst, Weigel, Meredith, Cox, Mission, American Spirit, Morgan Murphy, Quincy and News Press Gazette groups, “Forensic Factor” (also known as “F2”) is a weekend option based on true crimes and the work of elite CSI teams. Shot in documentary form with richly produced reenactments, “F2” put the viewer in the center of famous investigations. The essential core of “F2” is scripted drama based on real events – the same recipe that has powered the top procedural drama franchises for decades. “Forensic Factor” is a product of the Bell Media Studios-run Exploration Production Inc. (EPI), a multi-award-winning producer of ambitious, original, entertaining factual documentaries and series for international broadcasters.
