    Green Screen

    The pilot was recently taped for a new WB show called "Green Screen". The show features a cast including Drew, Colin, Brad, Jeff, Chip, Greg, Kathy Kinney, Jonathan Mangum, Sean Masterson, and Ryan Stiles (as a guest for the pilot). The format of the show has typical WL games played in front of a green screen - or actually an entire green set. In post-production an animation house will replace the green screen with relevant backgrounds and props for the scene, using animation techniques such as 2-D, 3-D, CG, stop-motion and claymation.
    The series was given the go-ahead and the series should air Thursdays in WB's fall lineup.

    Current Series

    'New' episodes and repeats are screening on Thursday nights from 8-9 PM on ABC, moving to Saturdays at 10 PM from July 31. This results from ABC clearing out the last of the backlog from old tapings, including episodes which were preempted from their original screenings, and some extra episodes squeezed from series 3.
    There are no plans for more tapings at this stage. Contact ABC and ask for new episodes!
    Recent series have featured a number of guest stars joining in for individual games, perhaps intended to add more variety to the three-regulars format.
    Appearances included Sid Caesar (gibberish lawyer translation game) and Lassie (credits), Chyna from WWF (Song Styles), Richard Simmons (Living Scenery), Jerry Springer (Serenade, 3 Headed Broadway Star, Dubbing, Talk Show), Hugh Hefner with some playboy bunnies (Song Styles, Living Scenery), and that other Brady, Florence Henderson (Song Styles, Dubbing).
    New taping dates would be posted on Audiences Unlimited, though booking should be done via phone or mail addresses (only last minute extra tickets are likely to show up on the website).
