Fox Beating ABC For Time.

Fox is finalizing a deal to air the proposed remake of the 1966 SF TV series The Time Tunnel, apparently beating out ABC, Variety reported. Fox siblings Regency Television and 20th Century Fox Television are producing the new version of the classic SF show created by legendary producer Irwin Allen, the trade paper reported.

Fox is expected to offer at least a put pilot commitment, with a seven-figure penalty attached, Variety reported.

ABC, led by network co-chairman Lloyd Braun, has gone to great lengths to win Time Tunnel for itself, the trade paper reported. Braun took Allen's widow, Sheila, to lunch, and ABC also sent faxes to 20th executives informing them that it was prepared to match and exceed Fox's most recent offer.


From the Variety website:
ABC and Fox are engaged in a high-stakes bidding war to land the rights to a new version of Irwin Allen sci-fi skein "The Time Tunnel." When it's all over, one network will likely commit more than $4 million to the project before a single word is written.
