As expected, the sci-fi multicast network Comet has reached licensing agreements to air episodes of the original Mystery Science Theater 3000 series and a package of classic Japanese Godzilla movies spanning the years 1954 to 1975.
Comet — a co-venture of Sinclair Television Group and MGM — announced the acquisitions early today.
The Mystery Science Theater episodes will join the Comet lineup on Sept. 4. No date was given for the start of the Godzilla movies.
Comet also announced it will begin airing the original Outer Limits series on Sept. 7.
