to Michelle for this news: Grapevine'
yields second CBS crop-- Who says there are no second chances in TV? CBS'
Grapevine sitcom, canceled in 1992, resumes production next week in Miami. The
revamped comedy, about the lives and loves of the South Beach set, is expected
to premiere in March. Jonathan Penner, Steven Eckholdt and Lynn Clark were the
original stars as restaurant owner David; his sportscaster brother, Thumper; and
David's girlfriend, Susan, a cruise line executive. But producer David Frankel
has recast the show. Eckholdt, who played Thumper, now is David to George Eads'
(Savannah) Thumper; Kristy Swanson (Early Edition) is Susan. Frankel (Miami
Rhapsody) refused to give up on Grapevine and brought it up with the past four
programming chiefs at CBS. The network finally said yes, with some
modifications. "The tone of the show this time around is sweeter and
gentler, with more romance," Frankel says. His unofficial co-star is Miami.
"There's a really sexy quality to the city," he says, "from the
sultry air to the fact that people don't wear a lot of clothes here." From

Thanks to Denise who told me: Shannon
Sturges is in a new TV movie called Silent Predator. It airs on TBS June 13.
older news: My pal who worked on the show emailed me: "Just got an
email from Shannon Sturges who is in a Fox MOW that will air on July 29th....and also told
me about a trip to Africa. " Shannon was in the movie "Terror in the Mall"
on FOX. She was also on Love Boat recently.
Eads was a recurring character on ER 97-98
season as a paramedic. Someone told me this story, don't know if it's
true: "My best friend and I were at a bar in Westwood, CA. And I saw him from across
the bar and went up and started talking to him and his friend, and the bar closed, and my
friend and I went to his house and played on his sony playstation until like 4am, so we
stayed at his house and he took us home the next morning. Very sweet guy, at first I
didn't know who he was, but then I did, but it didn't matter. His house is very nice, and
I saw him in his Calvin's, he has a very nice body..but he is a small guy. About 5'7 or
5'8, and very toned. Anyway, it was cool..." I'll bet! Girls, don't go
home with people you don't know, even Savannah actors! ;)

The WB has canceled Savannah and two other shows. If you feel like
it, write to them at the below address and complain. Or join Nicholas' efforts to get FOX

Let's tell all our friends to write the WB Network to let them know how
much we love Savannah and want it back. The Warner Brothers Network (WB) 4000 Warner
Blvd., Bldg. 34R Burbank, CA 91522 (There is no email address that I know of). Thanks to
Meredith for this suggestion.
From Reuters/Variety May 14th: "Leaving the schedule are Brotherly
Love, Life With Roger and Savannah, the latter of which was the talk of last season's
upfront presentation after a strong midseason debut. Garth Ancier, president of the WB's
entertainment division, said Savannah had a "rough season creatively," but
attributed its cancellation to the fact that serial dramas don't repeat well, making the
investment too expensive."
Jeremy Thompson has lost his email address for the Save Savannah campaign but he urges
you to send a letter to the WB address above. You can also email Nick to add your emails to ask for the WB to
bring the show back.
