Drama streams from TNT

Cabler kicks off DramaVision

TNT is taking its miniseries and movies online.

Cabler will launch DramaVision, a streaming-video link on Tnt.tv that will feature TNT’s 12-hour “Into the West” miniseries, on Tuesday.”Into the West” and all of the other TNT broadband offerings will be free, but viewers will have to put up with commercials, which will not be subject to fast-forwarding.

Steve Koonin, exec VP and chief operating officer of TNT and TBS, said, “A number of people kept asking us when they could see ‘Into the West’ again, but we couldn’t carve out the 12 hours of the TNT schedule to accommodate them.”

TNT won’t be able to stream its current scripted series “The Closer” and “Saved” because the net doesn’t have those rights, which are held by Warner Bros. TV and Fox 21/Imagine Entertainment, respectively.

But the DramaVision lineup will include such older TNT movies as “Crossfire Trail,” “Andersonville” and biopic “George Wallace.”

TNT sister net Court TV will produce “Ripped From the Headlines,” an exclusive series for the platform covering real-life cases. TNT will promote the Webisodes during its multiple runs of “Law & Order.”

DramaVision will also include some live-event programming from “The Screen Actors Guild Awards” and “The Black Movie Awards,” both of which TNT carries live.
