Times slots Scott for TV

Conversational interviews to air on Thursday nights

New York Times chief movie critic A.O. Scott has signed on to host weekly two-minute movie review segs on the Discovery Times Channel.

Scott will dispense commentary in conversational interviews to air on Thursday nights as part of the hourlong “Discovery Times Screening Room.”

Segs will likely cover two films that will be based on but not directly excerpted from reviews published in Friday’s paper.

“If you are reading from a script or adapting what you write in the paper, it doesn’t flow as well as if you’re talking more informally,” Scott said. “In some ways television is easier than writing because someone else puts it into a nice package.”
