    I understand Artisan, now Lion's Gate, has exclusive rights to Spelling Properties until Sept. 2005. So, since Spelling had bought Worldvision who had bought Republic, would this be the reason that all Worldvision and Republic titles have been held up?

    I know that Spelling shows like Charlie's Angels and Charmed have been or are being released through other studios. So what titles would this deal involve?

    Charlie's Angels is owned by Columbia so that doesn't fall into this category. Worldvision owned the old ABC shows like The Fugitive, Invaders, One Step Beyond, Ben Casey, etc. while Republic owned NBC shows like Bonanza and Get Smart. Also, Spelling itself has 90210, Melrose and a bunch of the other trashy 90s series.
