HBO Shopping True Blood Reruns


HBO, which previously sold The Sopranos to A&E for over $2 million, is already shopping True Blood to cable networks, reportedly asking for $800,000 per episode. No word yet on which networks are taking the bait, but the show would likely be watered down and a lot less naked and bloody, which sort of defeats the purpose. Then again, True Blood in syndication would still beat a lot of the typical eleven o'clock fare, like Everybody Loves Raymond or equally non-naked Sex & the City episodes from 1999. [NYP]
