What ever happened to this made-for-TV movie that was supposed to air this winter? Anybody heard anything about it lately?

It is going straight to DVD, I'm not sure if it is available yet, but I have seen advertisments in Playbills.

I have to agree, it does not look good. I feel that Ulman is horribly miscast. I will probably watch it to find out though.
I stand corrected, you are as vapid as they say.

"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Dec 18th is indeed the expected airdate, tho theyve pushed it back a billion times. I wish theyd just make up their minds already.

I don't get WHY they keep pushing it back. Maybe they know it's bad, and don't really want people to see it. But, they've announced it already so now they have to. :) Who knows. I hope they stick to this air date. It's been finished for over a year now!

I think the network might just be scared because it's not a musical that all that many people are familiar with. I don't really expect it to be that bad, although it might be.
"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

I'm only watching it for Matthew Morrison. Otherwise I'd probably really have no interest in it.
