Cynthia Gibb The Karen Carpenter Story Trailer

Trailer for The Karen Carpenter story from 1989 starring Cynthia Gibb.

A Special Place

Sunday is the 30th Anniversary of the U.K. broadcast of  "A Special Place". Shown out of order as episode 12 instead of  episode 16. My assumption is the BBC broadcast certain episodes earlier because these episodes featured the songs that were on the "Kids from Fame " album and they wanted to use them to promote the album.

Watch and re-live the fame Memories.

New Fame TV Series

In a press statement on the new Fame TV series, Nigel Lythgoe has said:

"In my lifetime, I've discovered a great many incredibly talented individuals - some have achieved stardom. "Simultaneously, I've seen many dreams shattered, egos destroyed and lives changed forever. The end destination may well be fame and fortune, but the road to stardom is littered with broken hearts. "I look forward to stripping away the glitter and glamour and revealing the true mixture of passion, humanity, exhaustion and sacrifice that these richly talented individuals endure on their road to fame."

Debbie Allen, says she thinks the reboot is "a great idea."

"Nigel talked to me about it about six months ago, maybe longer," Debbie told TVGuide.com on the set of Grey's Anatomy on Tuesday. "He's been trying to get these rights for a while. I'm glad that MGM is partnering with him. He's a great, such an incredible advocate for the dance world. He cut his teeth on Fame back in the day, so I think it's terrific." 

Debbie also said she's unsure whether she'll be involved with the new series, she says she'll always hold a soft spot in her heart for the original. "Fame [is] always going to be a part of me and belong to me, "Whatever [reincarnation] it comes back in, it will always be a part of me."

New Fame TV Series on the way!!!!!!!

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that MGM and "So You Think You Can Dance" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe are teaming up to reboot "Fame" as an all new scripted TV Series!

No word on as to when this would actually be broadcast with my guess being September/October 2013 at the earliest. 

I would hope they would have some continuity with the original series and as Nigel Lythgoe and Debbie Allen are friends I would hope Debbie is involved in some capacity. 

I would also hope that if the show was successful then MGM would want to cash in and finally release the remaining seasons of the original series on DVD.

Well, keep you updated when further information is known.
