TBS has acquired Warner Bros.' 2 Broke Girls, the first sale to be
announced after the syndicator shopped the sitcom to cable networks and
broadcast groups over the past few weeks.
"When 2 Broke Girls premiered last fall, it immediately found
its audience and appeared to us to be a perfect fit for TBS," said Michael
Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies
(TCM), in a statement. "With its funny and endearing lead performances, a
terrific supporting cast and sharp writing, 2 Broke Girls brings a
fresh, contemporary, attitude to the classic sitcom format."
2 Broke Girls went to TBS for more than $1.5 million per episode,
according to several sources, beating the price that TBS paid for Warner Bros.'
The Big Bang Theory and USA paid for Twentieth's Modern Family,
both of which also were around $1.5 million. The show will premiere in
syndication in fall 2015.
