UPN invests in 2nd comedy block

14 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

UPN has set its sights on relaunching a second comedy night next season. The network has ordered four new comedies for the fall, the most laughs it has carried on its schedule since 1997, sources said. The network picked up all four comedy pilots Warner Bros. TV produced for it this season -- the Duane Martin starrer All of Us, based on the real home life of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith; Opposite Sex, which stars Eve as a clothing designer; the family comedy Rock Me Baby; and an untitled project about two redneck brothers sporting mullet haircuts. With its current crop of Monday comedies all set to return in the fall, it's clear that UPN will be opening up a second comedy front for its four new sitcoms in the fall. As further evidence, UPN has so far picked up only one new drama, Viacom Prods.' sci-fi project Jake 2.0 (formerly untitled nanobot), though it will be saying goodbye to three dramas at next week's season close: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the canceled freshmen Haunted and The Twilight Zone. »
