The Addams Family Coming to FETV; Netflix Developing Korean Sitcom

The Addams Family

October is coming and FETV is adding the perfect comedy for fall and Halloween season - The Addams Family The classic '60s sitcom will air Weekdays 1pm ET and Weekends at 11pm ET starting Monday, October 5. It will join other fellow FETV sitcoms such as Green Acres, Father Knows Best, Hazel, I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched in the daytime lineup. In late night FETV airs Barney Miller, Maude, One Day at a Time, and Designing Women, with Partridge Family airing on weekend mornings.

The Addams Family is a 1964-66 ABC macabre/black comedy sitcom based on the characters from Charles Addams' New Yorker cartoons. The Addams Family are a close-knit extended family with decidedly macabre interests and supernatural abilities. The wealthy, endlessly enthusiastic Gomez Addams (John Astin) is madly in love with his refined wife, Morticia (Carolyn Jones). Along with their daughter Wednesday (Lisa Loring), their son Pugsley (Ken Weatherwax), Uncle Fester (Jackie Coogan), and Grandmama (Blossom Rock), all reside in an ornate, gloomy, mansion. The family is attended by their servants: Lurch (Ted Cassidy), the towering butler, and Thing (also Cassidy), a disembodied hand that appears from within wooden boxes and other places. Other relatives who made recurring appearances included Cousin Itt (Felix Silla), Morticia's older sister Ophelia (also portrayed by Jones), and Morticia’s mother Grandma Frump (Margaret Hamilton). The show is also notable for its opening theme, which was composed and sung by Vic Mizzy.


So Not Worth It

Netflix, the world's leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed production for So Not Worth It, a sitcom about youthful adventures of students with multicultural backgrounds who live in a college dorm. So Not Worth It will be created by Kwon Ik-joon, a sitcom heavyweight who has shaped the landscape of Korean style sitcoms with such shows as Three Guys And Three Girls and Nonstop. Kwon will team up with another seasoned producer Kim Jung-sik (Smashing on Your Back, High Kick), while the screenplay will be co-written by Seo Eun-jung (Soonpoong Clinic, New Nonstop) and Baik Ji-hyun (Nonstop, Rude Miss Young-Ae).

The international cast of quirky dorm residents has also been confirmed. Park Se-wan, a rising star who has demonstrated solid acting chops in the shows like Just Dance, School 2017 and Never Twice, will play her namesake character, a Korean resident advisor in charge of the dorm. Rookie actor Shin Hyeon-seung will play Jamie, a mysterious newcomer harboring a secret. Choi Young-jae of the K-pop boy band GOT7 will unleash his offbeat charm as Sam, a son of the CEO of a global food chain based in Australia. Minnie of the K-pop girl group (G)I-DLE makes her acting debut as a student from Thailand with K-drama fever. The model-turned actor Han Hyun-min who frequently appears in Korean variety shows will play his namesake character, the unfortunate Korean student who is eager to live in the dorm as he has to commute for long hours every day.

With production and casting confirmed, So Not Worth It stands poised to reignite enthusiasm for the sitcom format with its unique take on the genre. The new Korean original series will be produced by Mystic Story, and will be released worldwide only on Netflix.
