Maverick and Bret Maverick Reruns to Encore Westerns; Nick at Nite Latin America Adds New Shows and Look

The Encore Westerns channel will be adding the classic TV western Maverick to its line-up beginning July 4 with a 12-hour marathon beginning at noon – airs each hour, on the hour. The series ran from 1957-62 starring the legendary James Garner, Jack Kelly, and Roger Moore. Maverick will then join the Classic TV Westerns blocks on Encore Westerns beginning on Monday, July 7 that includes The Gene Autry Show, Bat Masterson, The Big Valley, The Rifleman, Cimarron Strip, and the 1998 Magnificent Seven. Encore Westerns had aired other TV westerns in the past such as the early seasons of Gunsmoke (Marshal Dillon) and Alias Smith & Jones.
Maverick will air weeknights at 6:00 p.m. ET and Saturday mornings at 8:00 a.m. ET beginning July 7.
Then coming in August, Encore Westerns will add the short lived series Bret Maverick (1981-82) to Saturdays at 11:35am beginning August 2 replacing Cimarron Strip. We will have more on that when available, but Bret Maverick has the return of James Garner as Maverick. Returning to the role that made him famous, James Garner is once again Bret Maverick who has decided to settle down in the town of Sweetwater, AZ. Now Maverick must learn to get along as the Wild West is tamed by modern civilization.
Discuss the addition of Maverick and the revival series Bret Maverick on our westerns message board where you can also find all the airtimes of the TV westerns on Encore Westerns. Saddle up, pardners!

It's been a few years since the launch of Nick at Nite Latin America, and we brought that news to back then, now they have announced a new look with some new shows as well. They (Nickelodeon Latin America) are launching a refreshed image campaign for the family-programming block Nick at Nite Latin America, complete with new promos, IDs, fillers, bumpers and classic series.
The logo for Nick at Nite Latin America has been changed to orange to complement Nickelodeon's overall look and feel, just like how it is in the U.S. now. The block also features new on-air elements such as IDs, fillers, bumpers and menus, with a complete overhaul of all current promos and creative graphics. The changes are also reflected on Nick at Nite Latin America's section within the Nickelodeon Latin America website.
Along with the revamped image, Nick at Nite Latin America will feature new series, including Kenan and Kel, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Get Smart...just in time for the new movie. Get Smart will get a weekend marathon this weekend on Nick at Nite Latin America. Too bad no one in the United States is doing this! These join classic series already airing in the block such as Clarissa Explains It All, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Growing Pains, The Munsters, The Addams Family, and ALF.
These shows will only available to the Latin American countries and not in the U.S., I remind you.
