NBC and its newly acquired cable channel Bravo announced it has acquired the network and basic cable rights to Chicago, which won Best Picture at Sunday's Academy Awards. Chicago will make its network TV debut in November 2005. The movie will appear on Bravo before the end of 2005. NBC and Bravo will share the same three-year window for the film. NBC Entertainment President Jeff Zucker said NBC wanted the film. "We don't buy many theatrical movies any more. But this one we had to have. It's a perfect fit for both NBC and Bravo," he said in a prepared statement.
