‘Judge’ rules in New York

NVC will make new home for gaveler

Columbia TriStar TV Distribution has decided to tape its new syndicated five-a-week hour “Judge Hatchett” in New York City, signing a deal with the National Video Center on West 42nd Street.

Production company on “Hatchett” will move into the NVC facility later this month, and CTTD has already constructed the set for the series.

The NVC, which bills itself as the largest privately owned “tele-production” center in New York, has also formed a new music division called National Kingsize Music, to be headed by musicians Jay Stollman, Peter Primamore and Fred Shehadi. They have composed music for “The Today Show,” “Sex and the City” and a number of cable networks.

In a third deal, NVC has set up a partnership with XYZ Pictures and its creative exec Frank Ferrigno, whose field is computer animation.
