Encore Gets Into News Business


Premium network Encore will bow CineNews, an original weekly half-hour
program focused on the business side of movies and filmmaking, beginning May

The series will premiere every Sunday morning, followed by an encore
presentation Mondays at 5:30 p.m.

CineNews will provide in-depth information about the movie industry,
including casting, production and script-development deals; marketing and
distribution strategies; critical reviews; and on-set interviews with actors,
directors and producers.

"CineNews will give our movie-savvy viewers an in-depth look at
moviemaking that goes beyond celebrity glamour and gossip, taking viewers behind
the camera and to the bottom line," Starz Encore Entertainment president Bob
Leighton said in a prepared statement.
