The companies will produce and distribute five one-hour quarterly spex featuring major sports personalities.

The undertaking represents DIC’s entry into the sports and interview arena, according to company prez-CEO Andy Heyward.

“This move is part of our ongoing plan to create opportunities in all areas of the entertainment industry,” he said.

Albert began his career as a sports commentator in 1963, and since 1977 has been with NBC Sports.
