*Bounce TV, which bills itself as the first broadcast TV network for African Americans, is making its first move into off-network series acquisition, reports Deadline.com.

The channel has picked up “Roc” (72 episodes) and “The Parent ‘Hood” (90 episodes) from Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution, “A Different World” (144 episodes) from Carsey-Werner Distribution and “The Hughleys” (89 episodes) from Twentieth Television in individual multi-year licensing agreements.

The four series will be scheduled together to create a new line-up leading into prime time, with the network airing two episodes of each show back-to-back Monday-Friday starting at 5 p.m. beginning Jan. 5.
