Singapore – Multimedia branded Entertainment Company Rewind Networks has inked a deal with Warner Bros International Television Distribution (WBITD), adding a slate of iconic shows to HITS. The basic entertainment channel is received by more than eight million homes across Asia today.
The network’s licensing deal with WBITD brings three all-time favourites to HITS viewers. They are, E.R., the award-winning medical drama that spanned 15 successful seasons and also launched the career of George Clooney; The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which catapulted Will Smith from rapper to Hollywood star; and Full House, the show that discovered Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen at the age of six months. The sisters went on to be famously known as the Olsen Twins.
Jeffrey Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution commented: “There is great demand for these popular series from yesteryear that is being enjoyed both by fans who loved them during their original runs as well as new fans discovering them for the first time.”
