Progressive Networks gets boost from Spike Lee
By Maria Seminerio

  RealAudio developer Progressive Networks Inc. has commissioned filmmaker Spike Lee to create three 5-minute movies for viewing on the company's new RealPlayer Internet video platform.

The films, being shown now on Progressive's Web site at, chronicle a monologue by actor John Turturro, a tap dance routine by Broadway star Savion Glover and students learning on the Internet at a Brooklyn, N.Y., school.

The RealPlayer software "streams" live video feeds to viewers over the Internet.

Progressive is based in Seattle.
