U TV SELLS ‘TEAM’ HOUR

Universal Domestic TV (formerly MCA TV) has sold its new firstrun weekly action hour “Team Knight Rider” in 15 markets covering 40% of the country, including six Chris-Craft/United stations for Fall 1997.

All 15 markets are among the 20 largest in the U.S.. Chris-Craft stations buying the show include: WWOR New York, KCOP Los Angeles, KBHK San Francisco, KMSP Minneapolis, KUTP Phoenix and KPTV Portland.

Universal is offering 22 episodes of the series for barter, with the studio keeping 8-1/2 minutes, and all stations taking double runs.
