2ND UPDATE: I hear How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls (WBTV/Alloy) is ”probably” picked up at CW, It was considered a slam dunk, like 90210. (Is it true HTTFRG‘s title has been changed to “Surviving The Filthy Rich”?)
UPDATE: I’ve just been told that, as expected, the CW has picked up 90210, the spinoff to Beverly Hills, 90210. I reported earlier that it received the OK to hire writers. I hear the deal is closed with Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah to run the show, and the script is being rewritten. CW renewed The Game for another season. Both are CW/CBS Paramount shows. Meanwhile, the town is still waiting on CW news for Reaper. The network is pairing the Tyra Banks/Ken Mok contest show Stylista with that duo’s America’s Next Top Model. And Variety reports that the CW has pacted with indie producers Media Rights Capital to program the Sunday night lineup this fall, with MRC on board to produce two comedies and two dramas for the block aimed at adults 18-to-49, not CW’s younger demos, and the specific shows will be announced at Tuesday’s upfront presentation.
