Bravo has the exclusive rights
to air all 63 episodes of the HBO hit series, Six Feet Under. Bravo says it’ll start airing the entire series
sometime this year, possibly this fall, although the announcement doesn’t give an exact date. HBO
refuses to say exactly how much the syndication deal is worth but this report puts it at $15 million, or $250,000 an
episode. HBO originally pimped out Six Feet Under for $450,000 but that was a little too rich for other
networks’ blood. As with Sex and the City, HBO has given Bravo the go-ahead to clean up the language and
I loved Six Feet Under (the series finale was one of the best ever), but I wonder how some of this stuff can be cleaned up for non-HBO TV.
