Radar has busy slate for fall


Independent syndicator Radar Entertainment on Monday announced a slate of 11 original first-run projects in development for fall 2008 for all dayparts (both weekday and weekend) that will be sold on a barter basis.

The news comes less than two months after the launch of its first syndicated series, "Jury Duty." There are five themed programming blocks, including: "Happy Hour," with separate shows hosted by Paula Poundstone and former "Studs" host Mark DeCarlo; "The Awareness Hour," including the shows "Motivate & Enlighten With Johnny Wimbrey" and "In Your Face With Bo Dietl"; "Justice Hours," featuring two court-themed strips; "The Empower Hour," with separate talkers starring Catherine Oxenberg and Stacy Kaiser; and "Star Power Hour," which includes "Jury Duty" and companion show "Star Witness."

In addition, Radar also is introducing two "stand-alone" half-hours: "Teen Talk With India Oxenberg" and sketch comedy/variety/talk show "Godfrey Live."
