I Dream of Jeannie Now on Logo; Disney Orders New Sitcom Best Friends Whenever

I Dream of Jeannie

The '60s classic I Dream of Jeannie is now on Logo! The Barbara Eden/Larry Hagman sitcom is airing on Logo in block format to go along with its other sitcoms such as Bewitched, Roseanne, Will & Grace, Just Shoot Me!, Samantha Who, Happy Endings, and The Golden Girls. Back to Jeannie, the show of course starred Barbara Eden as a 2,000-year-old genie, and Larry Hagman as an astronaut who becomes her master, with whom she falls in love and whom she eventually marries. You'll have to check your listings to see when exactly it will air, as it will not have a set time. For example, today it is airing from 10am-1pm. I Dream of Jeannie can also be seen on the cable network FamilyNet and on the digital simulcast network Antenna TV.


Disney Channel

Disney Channel has ordered the comedy series Best Friends Whenever, starring Landry Bender (Disney XD's Crash & Bernstein) as Cyd, newcomer Lauren Taylor as Shelby and Gus Kamp (Deadtime Stories: The Beast of Baskerville) as Barry. Production begins in March for a premiere later this year. Best Friends Whenever centers on teenagers Shelby and Cyd, who when a science experiment goes wrong, become unstuck in time, leaping forward and backward whenever they want - and sometimes even when they don't. Now with the help of their next-door neighbor, teenage genius Barry, the girls must learn to master their awesome new power as they time-shift through high school.

The series was created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas (both of Disney XD's Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja). Michael Kaplan (Dog With A Blog), along with Elinoff and Thomas, will serve as executive producers. Shelley Jensen (Austin & Ally, Good Luck Charlie) will direct multiple episodes. Stay with us for continued updates, including a premiere date.
