NBC Shows to Add Bravo Outings

In its first major scheduling move involving recently acquired Bravo, NBC
said the cable network will rerun Kingpin, its gritty new drama, which
has six episodes about a Mexican drug lord bowing during February.

But the Bravo version, due in March, will include "more explicit" scenes cut
from the over-the-air broadcast, NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker said
Friday.

Also in March, another NBC sibling, Telemundo, will run the "Peacock
Network's" version of Kingpin with a Spanish-language track.

In addition, Boomtown -- the Sunday 10 p.m. series pre-empted during
the sweeps month by Kingpin -- will be rerun March 2 in a 12-hour Bravo
marathon, starting at 10 a.m.

Boomtown then resumes its NBC run at 10 p.m. that night, NBC said
Friday.
