Plans for international distribution.
With nearly 7 million viewers tuning in for Wednesday night's U.S. premiere on TNT — the best in its time slot — Warner will roll out the new version of the classic soap opera to 170 countries around the world, many of them where the original series was hugely popular during its 1978-91 run.
It'll probably do great, but I'm surprised they haven't already done this. Sounds like they waited to see if it did well in America first. I thought international sales happened faster nowadays.
