2 SYNDIE SKEINS BEING PREPPED

Two new half-hour weekly syndie series are being sold for fall 1997. Hearst Entertainment is selling “B. Smith,” a how-to lifestyle series hosted by former model and restaurateur Barbara Smith. Separately, Summit Media is launching a new kids series about computers called “Wired World.”

“B. Smith,” which is being sold for 3-1/2 minutes of barter, is in the vein of “Martha Stewart Living.” The show will focus on food, home, clothing, lifestyles and decorating. It will be shot on location, with segments in Smith’s restaurant and her New York apartment. Each episode will have about four segments, and Betsy Alexander is producing 24 weeks of originals.

“Wired World” is a live-action series intended to teach kids and teens 11-16 about computers and the Internet. It’s hosted by Mark Bunting, and Worldwide TV.Com is the producer. Thirty-nine original episodes are being offered for 3-1/2 minutes of barter ad time.
