Chicago, IL (LTP) - Much maligned Big Ten Commish Jim Delaney and Court TV executives announced today that the two fringe networks have joined forces to create an even more obscure network, the Big Ten Court TV Network.
“We already have a lot of programming lined up for the coming year,” stated Big Ten Court TV CEO Kevin Weiberg. “We believe with the tremendous number of indictments and arrests we are experiencing within the conference, this network will have the national appeal we so desperately crave. When you’ve got geniuses like these two in Iowa City, we have a lot of zany talent to tap into. Below is a list of several exciting series we have lined up for our viewers this year.
Iowa City 911! – a spin off of the Reno 911! series, this show takes you inside the whimsical adventures of the Iowa City PD. Hosted by Dan McGwire.
University Cops! - The Big 10 3 of the top 5 in the Fulmer Cup standings. With this sort of talent pool, the opportunities for Big 10 athlete criminal mischief is limitless.
