Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharbutt Company Aims for Syndication By Jay Sharbull NEW YOHK (AP) Politi- cal jousting Is rumored to be the sole occupation of Wash- ington, D. C. It therefore is surprising to learn there is another facet of life in the na- tion's capitol. Said facet is a limited move by Post-Newsweck Stations, Inc., a Washington Post sub- sidiary, into the cosily busi- ness of producing TV shows for syndication or possible network use. Tha company, which owns TV stations in Washington, Hartford, Conn., and Miami and Jacksonville, Fla., cur- rently is cooking up: Three hour-long black music specials. A 13-part historical series, each segment an hour, called "The American The topics range from the his- tory of presidential inaugura- tions to American propaganda during World war I. Eight specials involving various plays performed by England's Young Vic troupe, an offshoot of the National Theater company. The Young Vic's efforts aim at the teen- to-25 age group. It'll tape two 90-minute, two hour-long and four 30-minute shows for Post- Newsweek Stations, Inc., this year and the next. The man overseeing all this is Ray Hubbard, the com- pany's vice-president for pro- gramming and executive pro- ducer for all the shows. Hubbard, who'd just re- turned from London after tap- ing the first Young Vic spe- c i a 1, Moliere's said "The American Docu- ments" series already is being offered in syndication and the black music specials also will be offered soon. He said it isn't known yet how the Young Vic series will be sold: "We're talking to possible syndicators and also to companies that might buy one or more of the plays and place them themselves, either on a spot basis or ion one of the networks." Hubbard, who declined to say how much the Young Vic scries cost other than to note "it's the most expensive sin- gle propect we've ever said his company got into TV production about a year ago. He was asked why it took that step, considering the cost and risks. "Well, it's because we feel that one of the things we have to do to keep our stations operating as well as possible is to supply productions you can't buy anywhere he said. "And the Ihings we're doing are not the sort of things that normally get into syndication. We're not doing game shows, variety shows, afternoon talk Knows nothing like that." The company's production efforts, he says, has the effect of slaying two birds with one stone. It both helps his sta- (ions' programming and offers the prospect of recouping the production cost or even turn- ing a profit by selling the shows to other stations. "If I have four stations that have a specific kind of pro- gramming Hubbard theorized, "that means there are other stations in the country that automatically have the same kind of needs. "And if I can Jill my own program requirements with taste and class by adding just a bit more money, I can move it into a level where it's jemi- nently marketable. Because it solves somebody else's pro- gram problems, too." Suicide Ruled in Hazleton Man's Death HAZLETON The Buchanan county medical examiner has ruled the death of Dennis Tup- per, 22, Hazleton, found dead o a shotgun wound to the head, a suicide. Tupper's body was found early Sunday. Services will be Tuesday a at Hazleton Methodis church. Brant funeral home in Oelwein is in charge of arrange ments. "When I announced last De- ember, I was number three. Dur progress has been remark- he said, pointing out the iioux City to Dubuque bike trip as put his campaign in high ;ear. Although Mingo farmer Wil- iam Gannon, who two years igo rode a horse down the eam- iaign trail, is considered to lave the lead in the present irimary race, Rasmussen be- ieves the "June 4 (election lay) poll will show us ahead." The third candidate in the Democratic gubernatorial run- iff is state Sen. James Schaben if Dunlap. Crossing Accident If you become upset by the lisrepair of some railroad Jossings, Rasmussen is likely 'our kind of candidate. It was near Ames last week, at a crossing where the rails diagonally bisect the highway, hat Rasmussen's racer hit a lole and tossed him on the pavement. After a brief roadside respite, he climbed aboard his bike again, but after 30 minutes the soreness in his arm forced him o stop. The soreness turned oul o be a fractured radius.
