‘Again’ resurfaces at Sci Fi

Sources: King World paid 35g for each of 22 episodes

The Sci Fi Channel, which has made a cottage industry out of buying reruns of busted network primetime series, has landed another one from King World: “Now & Again.”

The series was full of special-effects hocus-pocus, centering on a special agent, played by Eric Close, who morphed from the body of John Goodman, killed off in the first episode. Sources say Sci Fi paid distributor King World about $35,000 apiece for the 22 episodes produced by Paramount TV and CBS during the 1999-2000 season. The license term is three years.

Sci Fi will run “Now & Again” Monday through Thursday at 9 p.m., starting later this month, followed by another recent acquisition, “Earth: Final Conflict,” from Tribune Entertainment, at 10.

The exec producer of “Now & Again” was Glenn Gordon Caron (“Moonlighting”). Margaret Colin played Close’s wife and Heather Matarazzo played the daughter.
