Tribune getting countrified

Tribune Entertainment is getting into country music in a big way with the launch of “The Road,” a weekly fall syndicated series earmarked for primetime.

The filmed series from Bud Schaetzle’s High Five Prods. will focus on music and artists as well as profile pieces.

Trib also plans to introduce a syndicated weekly music radio program featuring lesser-known artists before the TV program’s debut.

Other elements of the company’s multimedia country music plan includepay-per-view events and homevid releases in 1995.

Trib’s entrance into country comes on the heels of Buena Vista TV’s recent withdrawal. The syndicator canceled the low-rated weekly syndie series “Countdown at the Neon Armadillo” in December.
