Cable networks plan flood of royal wedding shows
NEW YORK (AP) - Television viewers are going to be able to see
hours of programming tied to this spring's royal wedding before
Prince William and Kate Middleton approach Westminster Abbey for
their big day.
A Lifetime movie, a show that brings wedding fanatics from the
U.S. over to London and a TLC special on hoarders of royal
memorabilia are in the works.
These run-up shows are in addition to the anticipated exhaustive coverage of the
April 29 wedding by news programs.
BBC America has already aired two specials, "William & Kate:
Modern Monarchy" and "Modern Monarchy: Here and There," and will
air them again.
The network is also working to acquire up to a half dozen other
specials, including ones on Princess Diana, another on her two sons
and one on royal lineage.
