SitcomsOnline Digest: Craig T. Nelson to Become Coach Again; New Growing Pains Release from Warner Archive; More Complete Series from CBS
- It seems that every week, news about new pilots and remakes of old sitcoms come, and very few actually materialize... but in the midst of it all, NBC has ordered a 13 episode follow-up series to ABC's sitcom Coach, and the follow-up will again star Craig T. Nelson. (Hollywood Reporter)
- If you wanted to take a road trip on Black Friday this year but would rather not leave home, then fear not: TLC has you covered as they are planning to take a 12 hour live road trip on Black Friday. (Slate)
- A few months ago, we mentioned that Fox was being sued by actor Frank Sivero, as Sivero claims that the character of Louie on The Simpsons was based upon him, and it appears that Fox is fighting back. (Deadline)
- NBC has set premiere dates for some of their summer and fall sitcoms. (Deadline)
- It should be no surprise to anybody who watches Antenna TV that The Jeffersons and One Day at a Time are coming in April, but now, we've got the April lineup. (SitcomsOnline)
HOME MEDIA HIGHLIGHTS
- It has been a while since we've heard much from Warner Archive, but it seems that they have a busy April ahead, with releases of Growing Pains, Wanda at Large, and Dr. Kildare. They also indicate that April could have another surprise or two, although that does not necessarily mean it will be a TV series.

- CBS is moving ahead with more complete series releases, with Laverne & Shirley - The Complete Series and The Odd Couple - The Complete Series both set for release on June 16.
