Felicity Huffman in Leave it to Beaver, The Munsters and The Brady Bunch?; In2TV Launches March 15 on AOL.com

If you all saw Desperate Housewives this past Sunday, then you saw a commercial starring Felicity Huffman promoting Dove Night's Calming Night product. She mentions to go online to dovenight.com and watch her in all-new "webisodes" of classic TV shows. Here is the info on it:

Beginning Feb. 20 women can follow Felicity Huffman into a dream state as she has mom-to-mom chats with America's beloved TV moms -- Carol Brady, Lily Munster and June Cleaver. Dove, the global beauty brand, is premiering three groundbreaking Webisodes to launch its new Calming Night product collection. Directed by Penny Marshall, each Webisode shows Huffman as she is literally transposed into the Brady, Munster and Cleaver households. The Webisodes are available at http://www.dovenight.com through Apr. 9, 2006.
Thanks to an evening shower with Dove Calming Night body wash, Huffman drifts off to a dream world where she finds herself living in classic episodes of The Brady Bunch, The Munsters and Leave it to Beaver. As Alice departs for vacation, Huffman arrives on scene to take care of the Brady sextet. At 1313 Mockingbird Lane, she discovers her own little monsters are not nearly as creepy as the Munster family. After meeting 'the Beav' she learns that he is not as charming as he seems. Sometimes it takes being in someone else's shoes to realize that life is not always as easy as it looks. For the full press release, click here.

And we have the official date now for AOL's In2TV service. The service will begin on Wednesday, March 15. So you have three weeks to get ready. You have to have Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10.0 to play the full episodes I'm told. So, if you have not already, please upgrade!
On March 15, watch full-length episodes of popular TV series like Freddy's Nightmares, Chico and The Man, and Wonder Woman. In2TV is the first ever broadband network offering thousands of hours of full-length TV shows -- all free, and on-demand. Don't miss out.
A perfect way to test the system is to watch their first sneak peek video of In2TV, which is a "Where Are They Now?" feature on Linda Carter (Wonder Woman). You can view that here.

Stay tuned as we hope to have a list of episodes and more details on all the series at launch time!
