The current teen drama Gossip Girl had plans for a spin-off that never happened.

The spin-off was to feature a young "Lily van der Woodsen" (Kelly Rutherford's role) played by Brittany Snow.

It was considered to give the cartoon character Elmyra Duff her own show spun-off from Tiny Toon Adventures that focused on her and her family The Duffs.

A couple of Tiny Toon episodes only focused on Elmyra and her family to "test the waters" on centering around Elmyra. The series never happened.


However, Elmyra Duff later joined Pinky and the Brain in a re-tooled version of their show called Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain.

The WB show Charmed was due to get a spin-off called Mermaid.

This idea was inspired by the Season 5 two-part episode called "A Witch's Tale" in which Pheobe (Alyssa Milano) transforms into a mermaid in an attempt to "swim away" from her problems after encountering a mermaid-turned-human.


The plot of the proposed idea was to depict the mermaids according to the mythology used in Charmed.

A mermaid named Nikki is saved by a young man after drifitng ashore. She tries to live a normal life and help people with her abilities as a mermaid while avoiding the capture of those who want her back in the water with them.


The pilot was developed but when the WB and UPN merged into The CW the new network passed on it and Mermaid was scrapped.

From Good Times, Esther Rolle was also old enough to be John Amos' mother. She was nearly 20 years older than he was.

I think there was going to be a "Laverne & Shirley" spinoff about Lenny & Squiggy.
At one poinnt, there was going to be an "ALL IN THE FAMILY" spinoff about Fr. Muljescy-a priest that was played by Bernard Hughes on "AITF".

Yes.

The last word on that was that it was going to possibly debut in the Fall 2009 season.

Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally were rumored to reprise their roles for Jack & Karen.

Hilary Duff was asked to do a spin-off of Lizzie McGuire that would have Lizzie be in high-school and air on ABC. This was proposed after she did The Lizzie McGuire Movie which ended the series.

It was going to be aimed for a higher demographic (more than likely for the kids who grew up with the show and were now older themselves).


At the time Hilary Duff was looking to get on the big-screen and trying to get into music.

Duff demanded $100,000 an episode and she was offered $35,000 instead. She refused and they couldn't negotitate any longer so the second Lizzie McGuire series, and possible second motion-picture, never happened.

Maybe someone else knows more info. on this.

I heard that after One Day at a Time ended that they were considering giving Pat Harrington Jr. (Schneider) his own show but nothing ever happened.


I don't recall this story, but I do remember there was talk back then of spinning Valerie Bertinelli / Boyd Gaines off into their own sitcom once "One Day..." had ended it's run.

If I remember correctly (via "TV Guide"?), 'Barbara' and her husband 'Dr. Mark Royer' were going be living in a 'snobby' suburb, while Grandma Romano (Nanette Fabray) was going to make 'regular guest appearances'. (I guess Fabray was going to take over the maternal role?) In any event, it never happened.

Megan Mullally recently gave an interview with TV Squad where she talks about the "Will & Grace" spin-off that never happened, "Karen & Jack":



Karen really was the breakout character of the show; was there ever any talk of doing a Karen spin-off?

There was, actually. There was a Karen spin-off that was supposed to happen, and then NBC launched "Joey". And then they started to think maybe that wasn't such a great idea, after all, and they decided that they wanted me to do that talk show.


So that's how it all played out, and it's fine that it worked out the way it did. I think that they might have approached Sean [Hayes], but I don't think Sean wanted to do it. I don't know for sure, but I do know that there was definitely a Karen thing, and it was all kind of mapped out.


It was going to be sort of like an 'Upstairs, Downstairs' show, with Karen and all of her servants. And I had pitched it to Martin Short and Alec Baldwin -- and this is pre-Alec Baldwin even being on "Will & Grace", much less "30 Rock".

And they were both interested. Martin Short was going to play the butler, who was secretly in love with [Karen], but she didn't really know, and then Alec Baldwin was going to be my jet-set playboy love interest.

The "Beavis and Butthead" spin-off "Daria" had its own spin-off written but it never got off of the ground.

The proposed "Daria" spin-off was to be centered on the Mystik Spiral band; the grunge rock band featured on the show. Daria had romantic relations with the band's lead Trent Lane.


The script for the never-before-seen Mystik Spiral spin-off was released with the "Daria" complete series DVD.

A spinoff of a spinoff. You can only water something down so many times before you have...nothing.
