I wrote about classic television digital specialty network Me-TV’s Fall 2013 schedule last month. It officially launches today and sees Gilligan’s Island, The Love Boat, F Troop, Wanted: Dead or Alive and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (starting in November) join the network’s line-up. Also being added on Fridays from 8-10PM is the “Me-TV Made for TV Movie” block. Listings for September show that the first three movies scheduled are all Perry Mason telefilms:
Friday, September 6th – Perry Mason: The Case of the All-Star Assassin
Friday, September 13th – Perry Mason: The Case of the Avenging Ace
Friday, September 20th – Perry Mason: The Case of the Defiant Daughter
According to its website, Me-TV plans to air made-for-TV movies based on the following shows: Perry Mason, Columbo, The Mod Squad, The Brady Bunch, Cannon, Vegas, Diagnosis Murder and The Andy Griffith Show. So those hoping to see actual made-for-TV movies not based on existing TV shows appear to be out of luck.
