Good Morning.  It’s Tuesday, September 11, 2007 and this is your first early morning briefing. 

Today’s the day.  The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia will hear the case of television’s most famous Wardrobe Malfunction, and whether or not that incident – accident or planned – should result in a fine of more than half a million on the CBS Network and a $27,500 fine on each of the network’s owned local affiliates.  CBS initially appealed the fines, calling them illogical because the incident was an accident, not a staged stunt.  The FCC contends the network “knew or surely should have known” what was going to happen during their halftime show.

The Nielsen Company began a new web-based commercial tracking service called KeepingTrac which will allow clients to know if their commercial aired the previous day as planned and give clients the opportunity to modify schedules in real-time. The service also gives clients GRP delivery against the media buy schedule for National Broadcast Networks, National Cable Network and Local Broadcast stations in all 210 DMAs in the U.S. with next-day reporting and a view of the advertising campaign’s performance while still in progress. Furthermore, KeepingTrac also monitors the media buy to see if the correct creative is airing during certain programs and dayparts. Carat is the first client to sign on for this new feature.

Atlanta-based Career Sports & Entertainment, a full-service marketing and representation agency acquired JM Associates, the outdoor television content provider for outlets such as ESPN.

Oscar-winning actress and former wife of President Ronald Reagan, Jane Wyman died yesterday at her Palm Springs, CA home. Several biographers differ on her birth date and childhood details, yet she was at least 90 years old at the time of her death. Wyman signed her first contract with Warner Bros. in 1936 for $65 per week. She met fellow actor Ronald Reagan while on a vaudeville tour in 1939 and he became her third husband in January 1940. She was nominated as best actress in 1946 for her role as Ma Baxter in The Yearling opposite Gregory Peck, and then won the Academy Award for her 1948 portrayal of a deaf mute in Johnny Belinda. In 1955 Wyman moved from film to television as host of Fireside Theatre, an anthology series on NBC, renamed to acknowledge its new host – The Jane Wyman Theatre. Renewing her stardom and fulltime television work in 1981, Jane starred as Angela Channing, the scheming vineyard owner on CBS’ primetime drama Falcon Crest which aired until 1990. Jane is survived by her son Michael, a radio talk show host.

Housekeeping Note — this is important.  We are changing servers again.  I know, it’s a pain in the neck because whenever we do this some of you suddenly have trouble receiving Cynopsis.  (For the majority of you who never have any trouble, you don’t have to do a thing; your stuff will arrive as always on Monday the 17th.) We’re doing this to take all steps possible so that you receive the editions regularly, and your filters will be able to recognize if someone is attempting to mimic our “from” address and sending spam. This spam and phishing strategy by evil-doers is being used more frequently these days, and we’re working to guard against it.  The switch will happen for the Monday September 17 email of the editions.  So, please give this information to your IT folks:

Universal Media Studios, Reveille and Catapult have been given the go-ahead from NBC to develop a script based on the French-Canadian comedy series Serial Frank. The series, licensed to NBC Universal by Distraction, is a single-camera program about a young man who tries to lead a normal life despite having constant physical interruptions from the multiple personas that he acts out which are unseen to others. Mark O’Keefe will write the script and executive produce along with Catapult’s Marc Abrams and Michael Benson.

A couple of other projects coming to NBC, per Variety:

  • From Wolf Films and Universal Media Studios, an untitled drama is about two brothers working in a lawfirm specializing in medical malpractice, and one of the two is a doctor.
  • And a game show called The Interrogator, based on a Dutch format and from executive producer J. D. Roth, where five players answer questions in an attempt to win cash. There is also the Interrogator, who attempts to distinguish which contestants are lying and which are telling the truth.

A&E has a new cast-contingent project order for a drama called Under, about a young mobster who turns state’s evidence and joins the witness protection program.  In his new job, name and location, he is a uniformed cop in the NYPD.  The project is from Fox Television Studios and Gary Randall and Nancy Miller, per Hollywood Reporter.
