Disney's Imagine Finds New Home At Fox

Imagine Television, the makers of THE PJS, is leaving Disney for its new

home at Fox. The three-year collaboration between the small screen arm of

production house Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television will

take effect at the end of April 2000. Worth up to $30 million, the deal

also includes a two-year option extension. Imagine TV had been based at

Walt Disney Television since it was formed in 1997 by Imagine Entertainment

principals Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Imagine TV co-chairman Tony Krantz.

All current Imagine TV properties, including shows now in development, will

stay at Disney. About leaving Disney Krantz said to Reuters, "The past

three years with Disney. . . have been fantastic for Brian, Ron and me.

Unfortunately, their economics were such that we could not continue

together."
