American Movie Classics will team up with entertainment-industry magazine
Premiere to develop a weekly series highlighting
movies from the AMC library beginning Feb. 28.

Each weekly, two- to three-minute Premiere Movie Mag show will air
prior to an AMC movie and will feature Premiere editor Jill Bernstein
providing a short introduction to the film, as well as an entertainment report
on the latest film buzz, AMC officials said.

The first show will precede AMC's Feb. 28 primetime airing of The
Candidate
.

AMC and Premiere will
co-promote the series in the magazine and on their respective Web sites: www.amctv.com and www.premiere.com
.

'We are pleased to offer Premiere's distinctively fresh perspective on
movies to the AMC viewer,' AMC executive vice president and general manager
Noreen O'Loughlin said in a prepared statement.

'The teaming of two popular entertainment brands offers
our audiences a unique take on the world of movies,' she added.
