TV STUFF: 'Felicity' Transfer?
By Joal Ryan, Hollywood.com
SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 1, 2000 -- Will "Felicity"
be flunked by the WB? And if it is, will it be granted the
equivalent of a summer-school reprieve by ABC?
That's the latest buzz, according to today's Hollywood Reporter. The sophomore college-life series, starring Keri Russell, Scott Foley and Scott Speedman, is ranked No. 144 for the season to date, which even by the WB's generous standards is -- how should we say? -- lousy.
The Reporter says if the WB brings down the ax on the show, ABC might be of a mind to pick it up. It could be a karma thing -- the WB previously stole "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" from the alphabet network.
All will be revealed the week of May 15, when all the networks unveil their schedules for the 2000-2001 season.
