‘Dome,’ ‘Lost’ set clearance deals

Polygram lights way for 'Blind'

FROM NATPE
NEW ORLEANS — “Battle Dome” and “The Lost World” — two titles that describe the mood among many execs at NATPE this year — emerged with major clearance deals on the first day of horse trading in the Big Easy.

Columbia TriStar TV Distribution’s weekly hour “Battle Dome” has been picked up by the Chris Craft/United and Paramount station groups. The extreme sports competition showcase now has berths in 19 of the top 20 markets.

The Tribune-owned stations and the WB’s WeB cable web have signed on for New Line TV’s “The Lost World.” As part of the deal, Tribune will handle the national barter advertising sales for the latest remake of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s dinosaur fable.

Meanwhile, Polygram TV gave the official greenlight to its half-hour strip “Blind Date” after picking up a number of markets Tuesday, including KTZZ Seattle, KQCA Sacramento and WNDY Indianapolis. Dating show is now cleared on stations cover-ing 70% of U.S. TV households.

Paramount reported that its Leeza Gibbons talker has locked up 19 of the top 20 markets for its fall debut in syndication. Studios USA said its trio of talkers, “Jerry Springer Show,” “Sally Jessy Raphael,” and “Maury,” were picked up through 2000.
