    Disney-ABC Int'l inks deals in Asia Pacific

    SINGAPORE -- Disney-ABC International (Asia Pacific) opened this year's Asia Television Forum programming market here Wednesday with a raft of deals, including pickups for "Dirty Sexy Money," "Private Practice," "Reaper" and "Samantha Who?"

    As buyers and sellers at the annual event keep close tabs on the impact of the writers strike on TV schedules in Asia, Disney-ABC International said this year's market slate was its biggest ever, with 11 new and returning series. These include the new drama "Dirt" and ABC Family original series "Greek."

    Seven broadcasters, including Australia's Seven Network and Malaysia's 8TV, bought "Dirty," "Reaper," "Samantha" and "Private Practice," Disney said in the market's first syndication announcement.

    A slew of other deals is bound to follow during the next three days, with organizers hoping for the value of total business done to top US$60 million. Last year's market ended on $47 million, organizers Reed Exhibitions Singapore said.
