It’s been a busy day for the syndication market. Fans of The Mentalist no longer have to wonder why NCIS:LA was sold into syndication and their show wasn’t.
According to the pact between TNT and Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution, “Mentalist” will begin running weekly on the cable network in fall 2011, followed by a full-blown launch in 2012.
Neither side would discuss the financials of the deal, but the Simon Baker starrer is said to have fetched from $2.2 million-$2.3 million an episode.
