‘Scrubs’ to clean up thru ’06

Touchstone deal upped

NBC and Touchstone Television have reached a new license fee agreement to keep hit laffer “Scrubs” on the air for at least two more seasons.

Details were sketchy Sunday, but insiders said the two-year pact will be announced today at the Peacock’s upfront presentation to advertisers. NBC had one more year remaining on its deal with Touchstone.

With the new deal, “Scrubs” is safe until May 2006.

“Scrubs” has been moved around the Peacock sked many times during its three-year run but has proven to be a consistent audience draw. When it aired after “Frasier” this season, it held on to all of its lead-in or even grew a bit.

Zach Braff stars in the hospital-set ensemble laffer, which was created by Bill Lawrence, who also serves as exec producer.
