One of the fall season's best series will run for only six episodes on a cable network of whose existence you are quite possibly not aware. Trio is the channel in question, and its day is filled with reruns and movies, framed in such a way as to give them thematic cohesion or currency -- Trio's slogan is "Pop. Culture. TV." But as with any cable net, original programming is always the goal. That's what sells the brand.
