Dick Clark Prods. posted lower revenues of $10.6 million and net income of $360,000 for its first quarter of fiscal 2000, ended Sept. 30, due mainly from lower revs from television series production.

For the same period a year ago, the company reported revs of $13 million and profits of $46,000. Net income rose primarily due to a surge in profitability at its communications business.

During the quarter, Dick Clark Prods. delivered the first four episodes of a 24-episode order of “Your Big Break” to Buena Vista TV. Additionally, syndie talker “Donny & Marie” began its second year from Columbia TriStar TV.
