Court TV Unveils Originals


Moving away from its courtroom-coverage roots, Courtroom Television Network
will invest $160 million over the next two years toward the development of
original shows focusing on the investigative components of law enforcement.

The network will launch four new series during the 2002-03 season focused on
the criminal-investigations arena, CEO Henry Schleiff said.

\u0007 I Detective is an interactive show that gives viewers the
opportunity to solve crimes through a series of multiple-choice questions.

\u0007 The Elite follows the lives of employees within the nation's top
law-enforcement organizations.

\u0007 Body of Evidence: From the Case Files of Dayle Hinman follows the
exploits of criminal profiler Hinman.

\u0007 Dominick Dunne's Power, Privilege and Justice will take a look at
the darker, criminal side of high society.

The network will also produce two original movies -- Political Asylum
and The Interrogation of Michael Cowe.
