  • NUGGETS ARENA MATES TO PUMP BIG MONEY INTO STATE

         Colorado Studios, the entertainment complex planned to join
    the Nuggets' new downtown arena will try and "mirror" Walt
    Disney's film studio complex in Orlando. The studio will combine
    Comsat Video Enterprises, Prime Sports and NORAC, Inc.  Nuggets
    President Tim Leiweke: "A lot of people think the really big deal
    is the arena.  In fact, Colorado Studios will touch more people
    with their product than we'll ever draw to the arena."  Leiweke
    says the studio will combine entertainment with a way to
    distribute it.  "Comsat has the product and the venue (the
    Nuggets arena), Prime Sports has the distribution channel as a
    major cable sports network, and NORAC has the production
    expertise and facilities."  TCI is expected to combine with
    Comsat to produce an "astonishing array" of entertainment in the
    studios.  Comsat owns Beacon Communications, a LA-based film
    production company.  TCI owns part of 12 cable networks (Dinah
    Zeiger, DENVER POST, 1/31).

  • STATE CONSIDERS USING GAMBLING TO FUND STADIUM

         In Milwaukee, the state is considering using Indian gambling
    revenue "to help pay for" a new Brewers stadium.  According to
    Gov. Tommy Thompson's top aide James Klauser, the governor has
    not yet endorsed the idea "of asking a tribe to expand its
    gambling operation in exchange for helping foot the bill for a
    new stadium."  The tribe most likely to be asked, if the governor
    decides on the gaming option, is the Forest County Potawatomi.
    The tribe "appeared to open the door for talks" Thursday,
    although a proposal was not made (Cary Spivak, MILWAUKEE
    SENTINEL, 2/3).
