Associated Television Intl. is making the rounds of TV nets this week to shop a number of primetime speshes.
Move comes as the long-established syndication company is raising its profile in primetime with the June 19 launch of Lifetime reality series “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.”
ATI, headed by prexy David McKenzie, is also expanding into daytime talk with the Marie Osmond yakker set to bow on Hallmark this fall. Its live-events wing has been filling seats around the world with its “Masters of Illusion” magicians tour, an offshoot of its series of the same name that has aired internationally and on MyNetwork TV.
ATI’s selling point to nets is that it is a full-service indie that packages projects from soup to nuts, from concept to sponsorship deals. Its recent specials include Bio Channel’s “The Rocky Saga: Going the Distance” and “Inside Story: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
“This is a really good time to be a full-service producer,” McKenzie said.
