Oh No Green Acres Remake Hopes to Gain From Strike

Link


LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - TV veteran Richard L. Bare, who directed all 168 episodes of CBS' 1960s sitcom "Green Acres," said he has acquired the rights to remake the series for TV from the widow of "Acres" creator Jay Sommers.


Bare hopes the classic TV series will appeal to the networks, which are short of original material as the Writers Guild of America enters its third week Monday.

"Studios are going to be searching for properties that have been written and ready to go into production without upsetting WGA in any way," Bare said.

The pilot script, written by veteran scribe William Justice Forbes, takes place a month after the 1971 finale of the series, which starred Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as a New York attorney and his wife who try to live as genteel farmers in the bizarre community of Hooterville.

Bare also has scouted locations and has hired a casting director to find "lookalikes" for the remake.

The "Green Acres" concept has been revisited several times over the years, most recently as a reality project developed for Fox in 2002 by Bunim-Murray, the producers of MTV's "Real World" series. The syndication rights to the original series are owned by MGM.

Richard L. Bare is 98 years old so it was very surprising to learn that he was directly involved in this project. From all accounts he's in excellent health and I wish him well with this but I have to admit that I have my doubts.

Sounds interesting, but I'm doubtful that this concept will make it to the air.

Huge mistake.
We all know Hollywood will modernize it with all kinds of politically correct nonsense and not so clean humor unlike the original.They may pop a good rating for the first show or 2 just from the curiosity factor from all of the older fans,but then it will tank.Will they ever learn?

The change in humor is what I fear the most. The only good thing about it is that maybe it would bring more of the original seasons to DVD.

oh yeah, knowing most of the people that come up with these shows these days, they'd probably make sure there was plenty of innuendo and bad language....so sad.

Something like?:

Lisa: "Olivah, Ahnold is rubbing up against my leg!"
Oliver: "You dirty little PIG! I'll make sausages out of you!"
Lisa: "You're too late Olivah, hes already got one!"
SCARY, HUH?
