Plum TV files for bankruptcy

Plum TV, a network of local cable channels serving upscale resorts from Aspen to Miami, announced Tuesday that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in New York.

Plum TV airs programming through affiliate cable station 13 in Blaine County, but suspended local productions in September, laying off five local employees.

The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing allows for company officials to retain control of the company as it reorganizes debts and sells assets, under the supervision of a U.S. bankruptcy court.

Greenwich, Ct.,-based ForesightLab and New York City-based Media Ventures Group submitted agreements to the court that they plan to buy Plum TV's assets and provide financing for future operations.

"We want to reassure our audiences and advertisers that Plum TV remains in business and will continue to provide our daily programming throughout this process," said Tom Scott, Plum TV founder and chair in a prepared statement.
