Fox Corp’s new MyNetworkTV (MNT) is buying Buena Vista’s hit prime time soap Desperate Housewives for its ten owned-and-operated stations (example: WWOR in NYC) for weekend syndication. The two-year deal begins in 2008 and the MNT O&Os plan to run Desperate Housewives on Saturday and Sunday nights according to Broadcasting & Cable.
MNT is launching Sept. 5, 2006 with two hour strips of English language telenovellas. So far, the network has affiliates in 139 markets representing 82% of the country. Presuming its strategy for prime time soaps is successful, Desperate Housewives reruns would be an excellent weekend compliment in 2008. Lifetime has already bought the cable syndication rights for the show, also beginning in 2008, for about $500,000 per episode. Lifetime will also air the show once a week starting this August.
