Name game at ABC
What’s in a name?
For ABC, a lot.
First the estate of Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, forced the network to drop the title “Sam I Am” from its upcoming Christina Applegate sitcom. After announcing the show’s new name was “Samantha Be Good,” ABC has once again changed it, to “Samantha Who?” Mediaweek.com reports.
The network also announced that Emmy-winning writer-producer Alex Reid would join the series as a co-executive producer. His arrival comes with a two-year deal at ABC Studios, which produces the comedy. Under terms of the agreement, he also will develop new projects for the studio.
How’s this for a movie title?
The Christian-based Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will air the world broadcast premiere of the film “I Flunked Sunday School” tomorrow afternoon at 2.
Yes, that’s really the name of the movie.
It also pretty much sums up the subject matter.
Based on the book of the same name by Ken Bailey, “I Flunked Sunday School” is the story of how Lloyd Boyd (played by Kevin Dean), a man who flunked Sunday school, is called by the Almighty — while taking a shower — to become a personal preacher, EurWeb.com explains.
At first, Boyd isn’t sure what to do because he has never figured out what to do with his life. Still, he follows his heart and leaves his business card all over town. Soon he starts getting calls from people in need, including the church where he actually flunked Sunday school.
He awkwardly stumbles and bumbles through each situation. Yet God is able to use Boyd to change the lives of those he helps out of humorous and dramatic circumstances.
