Cable’s Originals

2/16/2007 7:00 PM Eastern

Here’s our list of upcoming original cable programming from Feb. 19, 2007 to July 31, 2007. “Original programming” means brand-new premieres, no acquired shows or fare available via broadcast television, home video or in movie theaters. Specials spun off of existing series are included, but new episodes of established series do not qualify. The list includes mostly basic-cable networks that have large distribution, though some premium networks have been included. The list was compiled by Multichannel News contributor Leslie Jaye Goff.
