DIC Animation City and Turner Program Services have joined forces to produce a series of one-hour quarterly interview spex hosted by sports commentator Marv Albert.
The companies will produce and distribute five one-hour quarterly spex featuring major sports personalities.
For DIC, the undertaking represents the company’s first 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.
