CNN TO MAKE MOVIES
CNN is getting into the movie business. The website TVNewser.com reported on Monday that the cable news network is planning to develop “tentpole” documentaries under the banner CNN Films to be distributed theatrically and air on television — presumably over its own channel. They are expected to cover a variety of subjects. The first movies, which will have limited theatrical releases and hit film festivals, are expected to debut in 2013, according to the website. CNN declined to comment on the report.
