PPI Releasing announced today it was expanding its SSN Sports (“Syndie Sports Network”) programming and offering additional options to aid stations in need of weekly programming to fill the holes created by sports cancellations as a consequence of the Coronavirus national emergency. PPI is also offering stations additional runs for its series “Just for Laughs Gags,” “Intervention,” “The Listener” and “Forensic Factor.” All PPI syndication series are offered on a barter basis.
Effective immediately, PPI announced it will expand the SSN Sports feed from 1.5 hours to 3 hours per week. The expansion will also include both primary and secondary episodes of its half-hour series, “The Immortals,” “The Shortlist” and “Pure Outdoor,” giving stations several new options for scheduling, including programming each show in a one hour block or the entire feed in a three hour vertical stack.
The logline: Anchored by stations from the FOX O&Os, Nexstar, Sinclair, Tegna, Cox, Quincy and Heartland groups, SSN features the greatest names and games in all of sports. The SSN weekly half-hour series – “The Immortals,” “The Shortlist” and “Pure Outdoor” – put viewers in the center of the action and expand sports rotations and sponsorship packages for stations.
