At the end of October, Bill Moyers announced the discontinuation of his one-hour series MOYERS & COMPANY. Rather than dwelling too long on this disappointment, we chose to look at it as an opportunity to try something new.
We did some research on a couple of series that have been highly requested by our Members and viewers. Our research showed that the MIDSOMER MURDERS and DEATH IN PARADISE would make an excellent addition to our Thursday night schedule on either side of DOC MARTIN. Those series are already airing in several other television markets and we've heard that viewers are madly in love with them. We contacted the distributors and purchased them, and we can't wait to provide them to our Oklahoma audience!
It's official... Starting in April, MIDSOMER MURDERS and DEATH IN PARADISE will air on Thursday nights, at 8pm and 10pm respectively. To make room for them, GLOBE TREKKER will be added to the Saturday schedule at 5pm, replacing MOYERS & COMPANY, starting January 11th.
We’ve finalized our January and February schedules and we’re putting the final touches on March. We're all very excited about the changes coming.
And then Monday we received the contract announcement for a new 30-minute series Bill Moyers is developing, also called MOYERS & COMPANY.
Fans of the current MOYERS & COMPANY series will want to see the new series in the Saturday at 5pm timeslot. However, because of the length of the new series and the other plans that we’ve already put in place, the new MOYERS & COMPANY series will air on Sunday nights at 8pm on OKLA starting January 12th. This OKLA timeslot is better protected from preemptions that occur from time to time on the Main Channel.
OKLA is available free over-the-air to all of Oklahoma. If you’d like more information on how to receive OKLA, please let us know here.
