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).
