WB wins ‘Will’ war

Peacock gives rights to sell strip domestically

The Peacock has given Warner Bros. Domestic TV a “Will” to win.

WB picked up the domestic rights to sell NBC’s “Will and Grace” as an off-net strip for the 2002 season after producer NBC shopped the series — one of the few newer sitcoms to show legs in recent years — to a number of others. Warners will now market and distribute the show, bringing it to January’s NATPE confab.

Insiders said NBC was comfortable with Warner Bros., having already developed an ongoing production/distribution deal on syndicated newsmag “Access Hollywood.” NBC traditionally handles only the international distribution of its shows.
