‘Chuck’ Highlighted As One of The Brands In an Integrated Comcast-NBC Universal
The Hollywood Reporter writes that during the annual Goldman Sachs “Communacopia” conference for media investors that NBCU chief Jeff Zucker said one of the biggest challenges would be to “fully integrate the Comcast [content] assets into NBC Universal.”
Kicking off Zucker’s presentation was a video highlighting key (according to the Hollywood Reporter) brands that a combined NBC Uni-Comcast would own.
“Chuck,” “30 Rock,” G4, NBC Sports, Versus, USA, Syfy, Bravo and Universal were among the brands that made an appearance in the video.
While NBC currently licenses Chuck from Warner Bros and does not “own” it, it is interesting to see Chuck highlighted in such a presentation. Not sure if there’s even a tea leaf to be read from that, but I can’t deny that a few months of “Will Comcast-NBCU Buy ‘Chuck’ from Warner Bros?’ chatter wouldn’t bother me much.
