TBS Grabs ‘Fresh Prince’

TBS has agreed to lay out about $22 million for the rerun rights to the Warner Bros. TV sitcom “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

Turner Broadcasting System and Warners declined to comment on the price, but “Fresh Prince” won’t join TBS’ early-evening sitcom block until 1999, when the series will have completed its first cycle in rerun syndication. TBS will get exclusive rights only for cable – Warner Bros, will be able to sell the series to TV stations for a second syndication cycle, also beginning in 1999.
