A month after securing a 13-episode fifth and final season renewal from Fox, modestly rated sci-fi drama Fringe has been sold in off-network syndication to Discovery Communications’ Science Channel. The pact between Fringe producer/distributor Warner Bros and Science includes a SVOD carveout, allowing Warner Bros to sell the series to a streaming service where serialized dramas do far better than in traditional off-network syndication. Chatter about a Fringe off-network sale started this morning when the series was listed as “sold” for a fall 2012 launch on a slide from Warner Bros TV Group president Bruce Rosenblum’s speech at an investor conference. Variety was the first to unveil Science as the buyer.
