NEW PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

CBS Films is developing a teen-targeted comedy titled Freaky Monday, which is based on author Mary Rogers‘ 1973 novel Freaky Friday, per Variety.  Produced by Andrew Gunn and Mark Waters, CBS Film picked up the rights from scribe Heather Hach, who co-wrote Freaky Monday with Rogers, as well as the 2003 movie version of Freaky Friday and the book for the Broadway show Legally Blonde: The Musical.  This time around the story centers on a smart yet insecure middle school girl that winds up swapping bodies with her English teacher.  Rogers’ original Freak Friday has been adapted several times as a movie (1976, 2003) as well as for TV (1995).

Answer to Yesterday’s Trivia Question:  This classic TV character was afraid of all sorts of things including water, cats, heights, cockatoos and wooden carousel horses.  Who is this?   MR. ED  Kudos to … whoa Nelly … nobody got this one.  I’m saving it and will use it again!  🙂

Today’s Trivia Question:  One of the funniest bits in this show included this speech: 

“Ahchoo!!. Thank you. I usually look so much better than this. Please believe me, I have a much cuter dress at the cleaners, and my hair…it’s just that I’ve had this cold, but I shouldn’t be talking about something as silly as this. And when you gave me this award…I’m just [coughs}…sorry…I’m just sorry. Thank you very much.”

What was the show and who made this speech?   (Email [email protected] with your answer and be sure to include your name, company, city and time zone. Unofficial rules: Only the second four correct answers from each time zone will be mentioned; and once you’ve been mentioned in any of the Cynopsis editions, you can’t be mentioned again that calendar week.)
