DOVE SIGNS THREE-SCRIPT PACT WITH NBC

 BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- NBC-TV has ordered three two-hour film scripts from Dove Audio, according to Dove President Michael Viner. First title in development is "Murder in Branson," an original story by Viner which Dove Audio will produce in association with Buddy Lee Productions. A number of major country- and-western stars will appear in "Murder in Branson."
 Viner brings to NBC a proven track record of highly rated projects, including two Sidney Sheldon miniseries, "Windmill of the Gods" and "Memories of Midnight"; the Showtime original "Rainbow Drive" starring Peter Weller; and "Night of the Fox," based on the Jack Higgins novel, for Tribune Broadcasting.
 Together with his wife, Emmy-winning actress Deborah Raffin, Viner runs Dove as a mini-conglomera ?with its communications division working in synergy with Dove Audio, the world's largest independent publisher of books on tape.
 "This is a great opportunity to maximize Dove's strengths in finding the best new published works and translating them into entertaining television," Viner says. "We're looking forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship at NBC."
