Short Take

Hearst Entertainment is looking to turn teen mag CosmoGirl! into a syndicated weekly half-hour lifestyle series. Twenty-two episodes are being targeted for a fall launch.

Skein will be produced with input from the printed mag’s editorial team and aims to retain the publication’s “sassy spirit.” “CosmoGirl!” will be offered on a barter basis with a 3½-minute national, 3½-minute local barter split.
