Here takes the plunge with Paradise Falls

Here, the network targeting gay and lesbian audiences, said Thursday that it has acquired the first two seasons--a total of 78 episodes--of gay-themed soap Paradise Falls from Canadian producer-distributor Breakthrough Entertainment for exclusive U.S. broadcast on Here's multitiered network platform. The series, set to debut on Here this spring, centers on a small town that looks like paradise but hides secrets, danger, and intrigue. Paradise Falls was first commissioned in 2001 by Canadian broadcast partner Showcase, an Alliance Atlantis network. (Reuters)
