LAFF, the new digital multicast channel specializing in comedy, launched Wednesday on tax day, claiming an additional sitcom on its 1040.
The network, owned by Katz Broadcasting, signed a deal with Paramount Worldwide Television Licensing & Distribution giving it rights to the 145 episodes from six seasons of Spin City, which starred Michael J. Fox, Heather Locklear, Connie Britton and Charlie Sheen.
Spin City joins almost 1,000 episodes of sitcoms including Night Court, Ellen, Empty Nest and Grace Under Fire, plus a bushel of comedy feature films, in LAFF's lineup. Each sitcom series will air daily.
