Disney to produce three spex for ABC

Walt Disney TV has inked a deal with ABC for three primetime specials during the next 12 months, beginning with “A Musical Christmas at Walt Disney World,” which will air Dec. 19 at 9 p.m.

The other specials will be “Disney’s Prince and the Pauper,” the 1990 theatrical featurette, to be paired with the classic Disney short “Mickey and the Beanstalk”; and “Disney’s Christmas on Ice III,” to air near Christmas 1994, following two previous ice-skating spex.

This year’s Christmas spec will emanate from various sites at Disney World with Robert Urich as host.

ABC also has a multiple-special deal with Time Telepictures TV, a reality TV production arm of Time Warner Inc., calling for various specials based on Time Warner publications.
