‘Family’ Reruns Hawked To Nets

Norman Lear has revealed that, when rights to his “All In The Family” revert back to Columbia Pictures TV in ’92, the studio will offer it not to syndication but to the networks.

Viacom has been syndicating the show, which ran on CBS from 1971-83.

Rather than continue to sell the series “piecemeal,” Columbia will offer it as a package to a network. “It’ll be fresh and wanted and new, not having played in major cities for several years,” Lear pointed out, and then Columbia “will go out and do a big push on it.”

Lear suggested that networks could use the 20-year-old series in a weekly primetime slot.
