DMGI Acquires Bill Cosby Show; Atlanta TBS, WTBS to Rename to WPCH

Digital Music Group, Inc. (DMGI), a content owner and global leader in the digital distribution of independently owned music and video catalogs, announced today a number of new long-term digital distribution agreements for classic television content totaling over 300 episodes including The Bill Cosby Show, Route 66, The Super Dave Show, and Dangerous Assignment.
The Bill Cosby Show: Aired for two seasons on NBC between 1969 and 1971, The Bill Cosby Show is a lighthearted comedy starring Bill Cosby playing the role of Chet Kincaid, physical education teacher at a Los Angeles high school.
Route 66: This classic television series starred George Maharis and Martin Milner as two young men driving around the US working at odd jobs, helping people, and searching for adventure.
The Super Dave Show: Regarded by some as one of the funniest television shows ever, The Super Dave Show starred Bob Einstein as "accomplished" stuntman Super Dave Osborne.
Dangerous Assignment: Starring Brian Donlevy as Steve Mitchell, undercover agent for the U.S. government, this 1950's spy thriller includes over 50 episodes.
As we announced previously, DMGI has The DMGI Classics channel which features classic TV series from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, including: I Spy (82 episodes), Daniel Boone (165 episodes), My Favorite Martian (107 episodes), Invisible Man (26 episodes), The Cisco Kid (156 episodes), Peter Gunn (114 episodes), The Adventures of Robin Hood (113 episodes), and Hopalong Cassidy (52 episodes and 60 feature length films).
For more details, vist the DMGI webpage.

WTBS will become WPCH (short for Peachtree TV) on Oct. 1, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The network will feature nightly blockbuster prime-time movies and a daytime line-up packed with sitcoms targeted to the Atlanta audience, such as Family Guy, The King of Queens, The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes, Cheers, The Cosby Show, Seinfeld, The Steve Harvey Show, Friends and Frasier. Peachtree TV will also bring local viewers 45 Atlanta Braves baseball games called by fan favorites Skip Caray, Chip Caray and Joe Simpson.
While Peachtree TV takes over the local broadcaster position currently held by WTBS, TBS' national cable feed will become available to Atlanta's local cable and satellite operators, offering the network's signature comedy programming.
So for people not in the Atlanta area, we all still will get the TBS Superstation, and not Peachtree TV, as that is JUST for Atlanta. Peachtree TV won't develop its own newscast.
