Default TV Land Developing Show Featuring Penny & Cindy...

Okay, I'm not sure if you guys have seen the recent blog entries, but basically:

"The Dish: Schlemeel! Schlemazel! … TV Land’s gonna do it.

The network’s president, Larry Jones, said he is developing a loosely scripted show featuring the real Laverne & Shirley, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams. As themselves.

He said a pilot, with the duo living together at Penny’s house, is scheduled to shoot next month. It would pair the actresses in a series for the first time since collaborating on the long-running sitcom, “Laverne & Shirley.” "


The full writeup is available here: http://blogs.tvweek.com/mels-diner/m...3.21.2007.html


So, thoughts?? I for one am pretty much speechless. But also very excited to see what comes of this and to watch Penny & Cindy together again. But I'd be interested in hearing from fans and non-fans alike....

My thoughts exactly. Bring L&S back. All this original programming is for the birds. Alf's TV Talk Show, that Farrah Reality Show. Pilleeezzzeee.

I'm going to reserve judgement and fire up the old TiVo! I liked the second reunion show and i'm thrilled when there is any excuse to get these two in a room together. I'm very curious to see if the hostility between teh two actresses in the last few years of the show will be addressed at all, or if reteaming will start it all over again.

Good lord, not another reality show. I agree with no more original programming, just stick to the classics. We don't need an L&S reality show.

That's pretty much where I stand too - as a pretty huge fan, any opportunity to see some Penny/Cindy interaction is great, let alone as part of a regular TV show. I definitely didn't see this coming, that's for sure. And I, too, am anxious to see if there is any mention of old hostility...

But, with that said, I'm already not too optimistic about how the show will be received. The general consensus seems to be that TV Land Original Programming = Not the Best Idea, and I would say that, in an overall sense, I definitely agree.

I'm excited to see it. Normally, I don't care much for TV Land's Original Programming but I will see how this project works out.

On a side note, if we get all of the series on dvd, I hope they put the 2 reunions on there as well.

Maybe to promote it they'll have a Laverne and Shirley marathon.I'm still going to give this show a chance even though I usually hate their original programing.

Personally, I like the idea. I know that there's a lot of reality tv shows out there but what are good enough to hold my attention? Pretty much none. I think that if this is the closest we could ever get to anything new of L&S, even if it's the gals playing themselves, i'm all for it; they're hilarious together! Penny Marshall cracks me up when she's on interviews so this should be good, especially how Cindy is almost pretty much the total opposite of her. I'm sure there will be some arguing, lmfao.

That would be great but I doubt it would ever happen. I believe L&S still airs on the Lifetime Movie Network.

I don't understand why TV Land keeps airing all these reality shows. ALF's Talk Show, I Pity the Fool, Farrah's Show... didn't all these shows get cancelled after only one season? What's the point?
