INSP Acquires Rights to Broadcast
THE HIGH CHAPARRAL
The show launches with an all-day marathon on Saturday, September 15th.
Indian Land, SC – INSP has acquired the exclusive cable rights to The High Chaparral from CBS Television Distribution. The acquisition was announced today by Doug Butts, SVP Programming.
“What makes this announcement so special is that INSP now is the exclusive home of this western classic,” said Butts. “The High Chaparral is one of the greatest programs of this genre and it makes a perfect addition to our growing western block, SADDLE UP SATURDAY.”
Henry Darrow, beloved star who played Manolito Montoya, couldn’t agree more.
“Folks never get tired of a good western,” said Darrow. “And The High Chaparral is one of the BEST. People often ask me why they can’t see it on TV anymore. Now, I can tell them, ‘You can! On INSP.’ I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
First aired on September 10, 1967, The High Chaparral featured the life and struggles of the Cannon and Montoya families in Arizona Territory during the 1870s. Under the direction of David Dortort, the creator of the project (and the genius behind such classics as Bonanza), the producers of this series were committed to realism and went to unusual lengths to depict actual conditions of the West. Even the Apaches who worked as extras on the set were real. In many ways ahead of its time, the program explored culture and class conflicts among Caucasians, Hispanics, and Native American tribes to an unprecedented level.
As the exclusive cable home of this and other western series, INSP is proud to offer a new generation of Americans the opportunity to fall in love with the characters and stories that made The High Chaparral a western classic. Launching on September 15th, viewers can enjoy an all-day marathon beginning at 1:00pm ET. The series joins the Saddle Up Saturday line-up beginning September 29th and also is scheduled to air in the Monday-Friday lineup.
INSP is available in more than 70 million households across the U.S. on more than 2,800 cable systems and on Dish Network channel 269, DirecTV channel 364, AT&T U-verse channel 564 and Verizon FiOs channel 242. Viewers can check their local program guides for channel information or visit www.insp.com.
