Where TV is concerned, sometimes Network to the Rescue can result in, or be the result of, an [[UnCanceled un-canceling]], as was the case with ''Series/{{JAG}}'s'' move from Creator/{{NBC}} after its first season (1995-96) to {{CBS}}, where it stayed on the air for ''nine more seasons'' and [[Series/{{NCIS}} spun off a popular show which in its tenth season (2013) became the highest-rated prime-time drama]]. Not to mention that the spin-off has ''two'' [[Series/NCISLosAngeles successful spin-offs]] [[Series/NCISNewOrleans of its own]].

* ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' was first to be published by Vivendi, but then they merged with Sierra, so Double Fine went to Creator/{{Activision}}, who dropped it too, so then it was picked up by ElectronicArts. Disappointed by the game's sales, EA [[ScrewedByTheNetwork killed the sequel]], which nearly drove Double Fine to bankruptcy.

* {{Atlus}}, and [[Creator/NipponIchi NIS America]] are really the patron saints of this, at least in the RPG world. So many great, niche games which [[NoExportForYou you would never expect to come to the States]] do so because of these companies.
