Sci Fi to Run Dead Zone Episodes

Sci Fi Channel will telecast episodes of sister service USA Network's Dead
Zone
beginning July 12, according to sources.

The quasi-repurposing deal -- through which Sci Fi will not show Dead
Zone
episodes days after their premiere on USA, but rather begin with the
series' debut installment -- marks the first time a cable channel has aired
another network's series during its initial run, sources said.

The June 16 premiere of Dead Zone, based on a Stephen King novel, set
a record for an original-series bow with a 4.7 household
rating.
