NEW YORK (AP) — The dogs are going Hollywood.
A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that NBC and USA Network are talking to the Kennel Club of Beverly Hills about televising its annual dog show. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no contract has been signed.
NBC has scored big with its Thanksgiving Day broadcast of the National Dog Show, drawing 26.5 million viewers for its telecast last November and a subsequent re-airing.
The next Beverly Hills dog show is scheduled for June, likely too soon for a national broadcast.
