TBS nabs off-net rights to ‘Moesha,’ ”Hood’

TBS Superstation has acquired the off-net rights to 88 episodes apiece of the UPN comedy “Moesha,” starring Brandy Norwood, and the WB sitcom “The Parent ‘Hood,” both of which will premiere on the Time Warner-Turner network in 2002.

“Moesha,” which enters its third season on UPN this fall, is a production of Big Ticket TV for UPN and distributed by Worldvision Enterprises.

“Parent ‘Hood,” going into its fourth season on the WB, stars Robert Townsend. It’s a Warren/Rinsler/The Townsend Entertainment Corp. production and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic TV.

TBS Superstation prexy Bill Burke said, ” ‘Moesha’ and ‘The Parent ‘Hood’ will continue to help us deliver young audiences during weekday afternoons, which will translate into continued strong numbers in primetime.”

The pair of acquisitions follow TBS procurement deals from “The Drew Carey Show” (also set for a 2002 premiere), “Coach,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Roseanne,” “The Cosby Show” and “Friends.”
