Putting The N in NHL


The N, Noggin's fledgling tweens-appeal network, announced Wednesday that it
is teaming up with the National Hockey League and Cinemark Theaters for its
first national sweepstakes, 'The N's Degrassi/NHL All-Star

That sweeps will run Oct. 7 through Nov. 30, with winners to be chosen in a
random drawing in December. Consumers can enter via the network's Web site (www.the-n.com).

The promotion's start will coincide with a special one-hour second-season
premiere for The N's Degrassi: The Next Generation, slated for Oct. 7 at
9 p.m.

The grand-prize winner will travel to the NHL's All-Star Weekend Feb. 1 and 2
in Sunrise, Fla., for a date with his or her favorite character on that
half-hour dramatic series. Runners-up will receive NHL jerseys, free passes to
Cinemark movie theaters and series scripts autographed by the cast.

Also on Wednesday, The N announced that it will begin new episodes in October
of returning series Being Eve and 24Seven.

As part of its 'Fall for The N,' the network will offer weekend marathons of
Degrassi (Oct. 5 through 6), Being Eve (Oct. 19 through 20) and
24Seven (Oct. 26 through 27). These shows' premieres will air on the
following Mondays.
